07:24 AM ET 10.29 | A new brand of basketball is coming to Norman. After losing its two primary forwards from last season and with new rules in place aimed at freeing up things offensively, Sooners coach Lon Kruger decided to make some adjustments in his team's offensive philosophy. The Sooners, who averaged just more than 70 points per game last year, want to play a faster brand of basketball this season. "I feel that we'll run some teams down, and I don't think they'll be able to keep up with us," sophomore guard Buddy Hield said. Oklahoma held its annual media day Monday. ... The Sooners' guards, especially the three sophomores who saw significant playing time last year -- Hield, Isaiah Cousins and Je'lon Hornbeak -- are excited about the changes in the offense. "I like that kind of style," Cousins said.
