HOUSTON, Texas - The OU men's basketball team is already in Houston preparing for the big game, and thousands of fans are expected to follow in the coming days.

However, that didn't stop the Sooner faithful from stopping by the Lloyd Noble Center on Wednesday to watch the team's final practice at home.

For the seniors, it would be the last time they would ever practice at the LNC.

After getting some time on the floor OU senior star Buddy Hield and OU head coach Lon Kruger spoke to fans about their support.

In addition to showing up at practice, many fans also cheered on the team as they left for Houston.

The Sooners will try and defeat Villanova on Saturday in the Final Four.

Tipoff is set for 5:09 p.m.
