OSU bops Sooners from Big 12 Tournament

OSU bops Sooners from Big 12 Tournament

Kansas is a five point favorite on the early offshore line.

"Russell was an average ball handler", Self began. Head coach Bob Huggins has a good offensive team that is above average on defense. And people would steal the ball from him.

"I don't know how the thought process works, but we're still talking about humans and everybody has a different way to think about things", OSU coach Mike Boynton said after Saturday's win. "We don't have enough of that". The Jayhawks beat Oklahoma State to advance to Friday (March 9) and the conference semifinal round against No. 4 seed Kansas State. It was Newman leading the way with a trio of 3-pointers, part of his 20 first-half points. And Kansas' first game in K.C. will be against a foe who has served as the Jayhawks' kryptonite this year - Oklahoma State.

"Marcus is a competitive dude", Self said after the victory.

"I just control the things I can control, and the only thing I've been anxious about since we played Saturday was getting my team ready to play", Boynton said after the eighth-seeded Cowboys' 71-60 victory over No. 9 seed Oklahoma in the opening round. "So, let's figure out how they can still not be any good even though we watched them play, and they were pretty good".

According to Garrett's teammates, the momentum that came from that sequence was the difference in the game.

69 points or less - K-State held TCU to less 70 points for the third time this season, as the Horned Frogs scored just 64 points on 46.3 percent shooting, including 41.2 percent from 3-point range. "That let us calm down". Undoubtedly, the Cowboys are playing like an at-large-caliber team, but following their loss to Kansas in the Big 12 Tournament quarterfinals, they are facing steep odds to earn a bid.

Self had an idea: probably a lot like the way it had been played up until that point.

That advantage was promptly neutralized by All-Big 12 forward Dean Wade's foot injury, though, announced Friday. If they reached for Syracuse two years ago, sure, it's possible they could reach again, this time rewarding Oklahoma State for numerous high-end wins while largely ignoring an NAIA non-conference schedule.

Among players with at least 30 shot attempts around the basket, Azubuike ranks out as the most efficient finisher in college basketball, per Synergy, converting 89.4 percent of his attempts.

Kendall Smith missed a 3-pointer.

"We're just trying to ride the wave", guard Christian James said. "Everybody is back and getting healthier, and we know what we're capable of".

It's not as if the ninth-ranked Jayhawks (26-7) were awful. The country's leader in assists (8.7) had plenty of options and chose a hard one. However, Oklahoma State would go on a late 6-0 run with under three minutes to play, beating Oklahoma 71-60.

"That was not a jubilant locker room afterward", Self said.

Sophomore guard Malik Newman scored a career-high 30 points Thursday as Kansas avenged two regular-season losses to Oklahoma State and stopped the Cowboys 82-68 in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 Tournament at Kansas City, Mo. KU last won the title in 2016.

"We're happy we won". "We've got to keep fighting and looking forward and get ready for the [NCAA] tournament now". It promises to be one of the most tightly contested tournaments since the league's inception, with nine teams harboring NCAA Tournament hopes - four of which would feel much better about their prospects with a couple wins.
