Men's Basketball Player Size Comparison By Season

These are the annual averages, maximums, and minimums for player height and weight based on the figures found in the Oklahoma media guides from 1965 to present. Note that these were often estimates gathered during the summer, but they are 'official'.

Since the average inches are rounded and there is a smaller variance than the weights, the actual non-rounded inches are listed in parentheses. Also, the '# Players' shown is sometimes greater than what was used in the calculations because many seasons include from one to as many as 12 players (e.g. walk-ons) added to the roster with no height and/or weight information available.
