BUDDY HIELD RUMORS & GOSSIP
Part of being a top-tier collegiate athlete is dedicating yourself to the weight room. For Oklahoma Sooners guard Buddy Hield, that does not seem to be a problem.
The Sooners recently shared photos of Hield on the court and in the weight room and it’s clear to see that the hard work is paying off. In fact, it looks like Hield is turning more and more into the Hulk.
Buddy Hield’s decision to wait on the NBA and return to Oklahoma for his senior season has apparently allowed him to get really-jacked arms.
The Sooners’ guard, who averaged 17.4 points and 5.4 rebounds a game in 2014-15, has been hitting the gym. A lot.
Just look at these arms.

Though some sports rivalries are incredibly intense and sometimes get nasty, one thing is always common:
Earlier today, Hield announced his intention to return to school for his senior season. In response, Niang took to Twitter and posted his feelings on the subject.
Glad I get another year to compete against one of the best players in the country!! Congrats on your decision bro...
Lon Kruger was waiting for one final decision, from his best player, before setting his expectations straight for this upcoming season at Oklahoma.
On Friday morning, those expectations rose to a another level as soon-to-be senior guard Buddy Hield announced he was returning to Norman instead of launching an early career in the NBA.
The decision has been made.
Oklahoma junior guard Buddy Hield will return for this senior season in Norman, opting not to declare for the 2015 NBA Draft. Hield, the Big 12 Player of the Year this past season, announced his decision at a 10:30 PM CT press conference Friday morning. He mentioned that he had “intentions” of going pro, but that talking to his teammates helped to dissuade him.

Oklahoma’s Buddy Hield is this year’s Big 12 Player of the Year, and for good reason. The junior shooting guard does everything for the Sooners, and in tonight’s Round of 32 game against Dayton, that includes making a crucial block on a fast break lay-up attempt that could have cut the Oklahoma lead to two points. Dayton guard Darrell Davis stole the ball from OU’s Jordan...
The end of the Oklahoma-Kansas game was pure insanity. First, KU’s Frank Mason was fouled attempting a three-pointer with 5.2 seconds left and his team down 73-70.
Mason converted all three free throws, setting the stage for some heroics from Sooner guard Buddy Hield.
Oklahoma guard Jordan Woodward took the inbounds pass and drove all the way to the rim, missing a scoop shot...
Buddy Hield of Oklahoma went just 6 of 20 from the field today, but this was the 6th made field goal:

A tip in that put the Sooners over Kansas in a wild one in Norman. The Big 12 was one of, if not THE, best league(s) to watch this season. The OU-Kansas game was another reason why.
#1 Kentucky and #Virginia took care of business last week. Both remained undefeated and atop the bracket. #5 Villanova and #7 Wisconsin also stood atop their conferences, escaping the week unscathed. Aside from these top teams, the rest of the bracket continues to evolve as teams beat up on each other within their conferences.
