“We wanted to compile a well-balanced RPI non-conference schedule in preparation for a strong Big 12 conference slate this season,” Gray-Walton said. “Our 2022 opponents feature teams that have participated in the 2021 NCAA Tournament, have strong conference RPIs and winning percentages. Overall, the opportunities before us have the ability to create a road to December “

“That’s a theme for our program; playing deep in December while striving to be the first to win a championship,” Gray-Walton said. “What we learned from last season is that every game counts. We had a good off-season, had great leadership and a hunger to win. The recipe for success is there. From the very first game of the year until this final at home, it will take the sum of our parts to see our name rise on Sunday of the selection. This group has the relentless pursuit of the challenge which awaits it.
