The Oklahoma City Stars men's basketball team is the basketball team that represents Oklahoma City University (OCU) in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, United States. The school's team currently competes in the Sooner Athletic Conference.

Oklahoma City competed in NCAA Division I for many years, and the program was especially noted for its success under coaches Doyle Parrack (1950-1955) and his successor Abe Lemons (1955-1973 and 1984-1990).[3] OCU appeared in eleven NCAA Men's Division I Basketball tournaments.

In 1985, the school moved from the NCAA to the NAIA and has since won six national championships.[4]
