Upset Alert: Oklahoma Is Leading Rhode Island At Halftime

Tip between Oklahoma and Rhode Island.

The NCAA Tournament is underway. It hasn't taken us very long to get to our first "upset alert" post.

It took about 20 minutes, to be exact.

No. 7 seed Rhode Island, a popular Sweet 16 pick in a lot of brackets, is trailing at halftime. The Rams are losing to No. 10 seed Oklahoma.

Oklahoma has carried a four-point lead into halftime.

OU is winning, 35-31, after 20 minutes of play.

This lead comes despite Trae Young getting into foul trouble in the first half. He picked up two cheap fouls on questionable charges.

Young had been playing really well. He was perfect from the field, going 4 for 4, including 2 of 2 from the 3-point line.

Oklahoma's size advantage has come into play, too. The Sooners are out-rebounding the Rams, 25-19.

The second half will begin shortly on CBS.
