The Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys are ready to get together in the 8/9 game in the Big 12 Conference Tournament. The entire tournament will be played at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. This is the third game between these two teams, with both teams winning at home thus far. The Oklahoma Sooners are 18-12 on the season and went 8-10 in conference play.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys come into the game with a 18-13 record, and are 8-10 in conference play as well. The Cowboys are coming off an upset win over the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday. The Oklahoma Sooners are -1 over the Oklahoma State Cowboys on Wednesday.
Trae Young has been fantastic for the Oklahoma Sooners, but his month of February really hurt the Sooners. Young scored a bunch, but was unable to lead the Sooners to wins. The freshman guard is scoring 27.5 points per game, and dishing out 9 assists per game. Christian James and Brady Manek are the other double digit scorers for the Sooners this season.
Overall, Oklahoma has won two out of their last three games. That’s following a 6 game losing streak. The two recent wins were at home over Kansas State and Iowa State. The Sooners are one of the top scoring teams in College Basketball with 86 per game.
Cowboys Looking to Get Another Game Against Kansas
The Oklahoma State Cowboys are the first program in 14 years to sweep the Kansas Jayhawks during the regular season. Now, with a win over Oklahoma- they will get another chance to beat the Jayhawks. If the Cowboys win both games, they are a likely NCAA Tournament team. Right now, it’s tough to give them the benefit of the doubt with just 18 wins.
Oklahoma State is led in scoring by Jeffrey Carroll. He is one of three guys scoring double digits per game for the Cowboys. Carroll is scoring 15.1 per game, followed by Kendall Smith and Tavarius Shine. The latest win over the Knasas Jayhawks saw Kendall Smith lead the way with a season high 25.
Sooners Top Cowboys
It would be nice to see the Oklahoma State Cowboys make a run and force their way into the NCAA Tournament. The problem – Oklahoma is starting to figure a few things out. The Sooners are a talented basketball team that had a terrible stretch. Trae Young is still an elite scorer, and with him on the court, the Sooners are really hard to guard. Look for Oklahoma’s offense to be the name of the game, as they beat the Cowboys on Wednesday. Take Oklahoma -1 over Oklahoma State.
