Know your enemy- Oklahoma St Cowboys
Marshall Moses and Keiton Page lead their offense at 18.6 and 14.7 PPG. Moses also co-leads the team in rebounds (with Darrell Williams). OSU really doesn't have a 3 point threat, despite jacking up roughly 13 of them a game. 9 players average 10 minutes per game.
Writeup of the game from OSU
Keys to the game:
- limit Moses inside
- need to hit some 3s (Davis, Hillman, Releford)
- Green has to stay out of foul trouble
- Releford with penetration (as I don't think they have a player that can guard him).
Prediction- I normally don't do game comparisons, but if we couldn't win at Providence which was probably the most winnable road game we had out of conference I can't see us pulling the upset in Oklahoma City (essentially a road game here). I believe we stick around and don't have the late meltdown like we did against the Friars, but nonetheless we come up short... again. Cowboys by 9 late.
Game time is 6:30PM EST (5:30PM CST) on ESPN2, Sirius 112, XM 231, and ESPN3.com.
