Sooners name hoops captains

— NORMAN — Oklahoma men’s basketball coach Lon Kruger announced Tuesday that seniors Andrew Fitzgerald and Romero Osby and junior Amath M’Baye have been named team captains for the 2012-13 season, as a result of a players’ vote.

Fitzgerald, a forward, has started the last 64 games for the Sooners. The 2012 Academic All-Big 12 Second Team honoree ranked third on the team in scoring (12.1) and second in rebounding (5.0) last season.

Osby returns for his senior season after starting all 31 games in 2011-12, his first year playing for OU. He averaged 12.9 points, a team-high 7.3 rebounds and 1.0 blocked shot in 30.2 minutes per game.

M’Baye will be making his OU debut after being recently named Big 12 Preseason Newcomer of the Year. He averaged 12.0 points and a team-high 5.7 rebounds per game while starting all 31 games for Wyoming in 2010-11. M’Baye hails from Bordeaux, France.

OU will host an intrasquad scrimmage at 2 p.m. Saturday inside the Howard McCasland Field House.
