Cade Cunningham Reviews Big 12 Arenas: ‘Oklahoma’s Weak’

Cade Cunningham has zero respect for Lloyd Noble Center.

Just a couple of days ahead of his NCAA Tournament debut — but weeks removed from his final game against Oklahoma — the best player in college basketball landed a well-placed jab at his school’s biggest rival. I love college sports.

Cunningham, the Big 12’s Everything-of-the-Year, met with fellow AP First Team All-American Jared Butler (and the AP) to discuss the Big 12, how it stacks up against other conferences and the league’s best arenas.

Cade put some respect on Allen’s Fieldhouse and Hilton’s Coliseum, but admitted that — with COVID being the college world he lived in — he didn’t get to experience the best arenas’ best.

But he had no hesitation about which gym he liked the least.

Butler asked Cade which court he did not like playing on and his answer came quick. “Oklahoma, Oklahoma’s weak.”


If anyone has the right to talk trash about that dingy dungeon in western Cleveland County, it’s Cade.

In case you needed a reminder.

In his only appearance in Norman, Cunningham dropped 40 points and led the Pokes to a 94-90 overtime victory — and the Cowboys’ first ever sweep of a ranked Oklahoma team — all in a weekend.

I love a little swagger from Cade, especially as he and the Cowboys stroll into the Big Dance.

Here’s the clip.
