Oklahoma’s basketball teams returned to Norman on Friday in preparation for workouts that begin on campus next week.

All athletes and staff members were tested for the coronavirus on Friday. OU will report the results of its initial testing, as well as provide periodic updates in the coming weeks.

The football program has done the same since returning on July 1. The school has provided weekly updates on testing results on those players and staff.

The NCAA allows the men’s and women’s basketball teams to participate in up to eight hours per week of weight-training, conditioning and skill instruction beginning Monday. Skill instruction cannot exceed more than four hours per week.
