NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - After a long journey brought on by his dream to play in the NBA, Amath M'Baye (ah-MOTT' EM'-bye) finally feels right where he belongs at Oklahoma.
M'Baye left his native France because he thought playing in the U.S. would give him a better chance of getting to the NBA. It led him to a prep school in California, then a stint at Wyoming before he transferred to play for the Sooners.
Oklahoma believes M'Baye can be one of the missing pieces in getting the program back to the NCAA tournament after a down stretch that included NCAA sanctions and Jeff Capel being fired.
In his second season, Lon Kruger says returning to the NCAA tournament is a legitimate goal. The Sooners open the season at home Nov. 11 against Louisiana-Monroe.
