NORMAN, Okla. -- The Oklahoma basketball team is having its best season in years and a trip to the NCAA Tournament is a real possibility.
Pretty amazing, considering OU's most-productive player is on the bench.
Forget the scoring and rebounding and don't check the court. He's not out there.

A very young Baylor fan stormed the court during the Oklahoma vs. Baylor game Wednesday night. Apparently he thought he could help his team win if they just gave him the ball. But that wasn’t in the playbook. The kid ran onto the court with 8:41 remaining in the second half of the Big 12 matchup. Officials stopped the game.

HGT: 6-6 WGT: 302
Lane Johnson is a very intriguing prospect that has played QB, DE, TE and OT. Johnson first came to the Sooner program as a QB from Kilgore Junior College in Texas. Lane Johnson started 12 games at OT in 2011 and 11 games in 2012 at left tackle. The buzz surrounding Jonson has grown rapidly since have a good week of practice in preparation...
