The eighth-seeded Oklahoma Sooners’ men’s basketball team saw a big blow to their March Madness hopes Wednesday with the news that sophomore guard De’Vion Harmon, their second-leading scorer this year, will miss at least their first two games following a positive COVID-19 test. Here’s the team’s tweet on that, sharing Harmon’s Instagram post:

The Sooners begin their NCAA tournament campaign Saturday against the ninth-seeded Missouri Tigers. If they win there, they’re likely to face the No. 1 overall seed Gonzaga Bulldogs in the second round. And being without Harmon, who averaged 12.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game this season, second in team scoring behind only fellow guard Austin Reaves, may make those games even tougher for them.
