Not too long ago, Sacramento Kings’ guard Buddy Hield took some time from his offseason in order to support a program that made him the player and man he is today.

The NBA regular season is still weeks away from beginning. But not to worry, both the NFL and college football seasons are officially underway. With that being said, Sacramento Kings’ Buddy Hield took some time off from his summer training in order to support his favorite college football team, the Oklahoma Sooners.

The Sooners are considered one of the top college football teams in the country, and this weekend they faced off against a formidable opponent in the UCLA Bruins.

Thanks to the Kings’ digital team, they were able to get photos of Buddy at the game decked out in Oklahoma attire. The Sooners also won the match by a score of 49-21. Coincidence?

Even though Buddy is not a member of the Sooners’ basketball program anymore, it is nice to see him still supporting the school that made him into the player he is. During his time at Oklahoma, Buddy worked his way into becoming one of the most dynamic college basketball scorers in his time.

In his senior season with the Sooners, Buddy averaged 25 points while making 50.1% of his shots from the floor and 45.7% from the perimeter. Throughout his four-year tenure with the team, he averaged 17.4 points a game while shooting 44.8% from the floor and 45.7% from the three-point line.

Hopefully, Buddy will record similar offensive numbers with the Kings this season. I am sure the franchise and fans would like that.
