    ***Official: Iowa State @ Okla. State game(day) thread***

    Mr. Anthony Slater (who is the assistant Sports Editor for OSU athletics) claims that there are 3 keys to victory for Oklahoma State. I'm curious to hear what CFers are saying about this!

    Don't get in three point contest
    The Cyclones have attempted and made the most 3-pointers in the Big 12. In stark contrast, Oklahoma State is last in the conference in both categories. This is the most telling stat when discussing the different styles of these two teams. Iowa State will try to make this an up-tempo game, baiting the Cowboys into long jumpers early in the shot clock. If Oklahoma State can remain true to its style, they should knock off the Cyclones.
    Play smart defense
    Foul trouble has turned from a little issue to a full-fledged problem over the past few games. Matt Pilgrim and Darrell Williams continue to play limited minutes because of their overly physical mentality. Not only has that deprived the Cowboys of two key post players, but also puts the other team in the bonus early. Although they can't lose the aggression, they must learn to tone it down or other teams will be living at the free-throw line.
    Feed off the home crowd
    Road troubles have plagued the Cowboys recently, but that will not be an issue tonight. With a return to Gallagher-Iba Arena, where they Cowboys are undefeated, expect a more energized Oklahoma State team. Some of the younger players have more confidence at home, giving the Cowboys key contributions off the bench. Additionally, the Cyclones are a rhythm team that can be flustered in hostile buildings.

    I don't think we should get to flustered in a hostile environment like Gallagher-Iba Arena. We'll be ok... Sometimes over-confidence can haunt (and hurt) the home team. ...Cyclones by 5

    Gotta take the clones to break the streak of losing at Stillwater. Clones to cover spread and win by 6. Banking on Diante to have a huge game.

    I would love this to be the Lucky Flipside to the Nebraska loss.

    I agree with his first point.

    On the 2nd, I don't believe we've forced other teams to foul much, so unless they do that to themselves, I don't see that as a real issue.

    On the 3rd, that may be a factor for them, but I don't believe it is for us. I haven't seen these Cyclones flustered yet.

    I agree that they haven't been flustered, but this will be the toughest venue (by far) that our team has encountered so far this season. I don't doubt the mental toughness of our team - but this is one of THE toughest places to play. I think it is key that we establish an early lead, and keep it within a one or two possession game throughout. If the Cowboys get a 9-10 point lead, the crowd would be rocking and make it that much more difficult for us to get back into the ballgame. Here's hoping that we can get that elusive Stillwater win tonight!!


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    Any team that tries to get into a 3 point contest with us is most likely going to lose.
