COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Oklahoma reached the NCAA Tournament for the third straight year and will face Albany in its opener on Friday night.

The Sooners (22-10), ranked No. 15 in the AP Top 25, haven’t won an NCAA Tournament game since 2009, when they fell to North Carolina in a regional final. Oklahoma got a No. 3 seed in the tournament after losing to Iowa State 67-55 in the Big 12 Tournament semifinals.

Albany (24-8) is making its third straight appearance in the tournament, clinching the America East’s berth with a 51-50 win over Stony Brook in the conference title game. Peter Hooley hit a 3-pointer with 1.6 seconds left.

Albany is 1-4 all-time in the NCAA Tournament, getting its only victory last season by beating Mount St. Mary’s at the First Four in Dayton before losing to Florida.
