    Re: NOTEBOOK: Booker helps with spacing, OSU a must win?

    Too keep any sort of NCAA and maybe even NIT dreams alive.... this IS a must win especially after you do a W/L to our schedule.

    If ISU does not win on Wednesday, they are simply not where they need to be mentally to be a tourney team. They are the better team in pretty much every category, and they are at home.

    Must win, barring earth shaking miracles.

    No, the single game against osu isn't a "must win" and isn't more important than any other game.

    The result of the next game against osu won't determine whether or not we make the tournament.

    I wonder if Fred will draw up some "Pick and Pop" plays with Allen and Booker like we did with DG and Jamie last season.

    Of course not but it would be a body blow that even Rocky couldn't come back from. If we can't beat OSU at home it will be devastating and would pretty much tell us all we need to know about our team.

    Saying this, I give OSU a 5% chance of winning.

    I don't think Book is a pick and pop type of shooter. At least not as a primary option.

    No, not at all. He is a 100% spot up shooter. When his feet are set and he catched it in a good spot it is going to go in 75% of the time.

    Its not a must win per say, but if you cant beat an inferior team at home, you're probably not going to end up being in the top half of the Big 12, and I don't think the Big 12 takes more then 5 to the tourney.

    OSU is dangerous though. Keiton Page can get hot..andf their big guy can rebound and obviously Nash is very talented and can create his own shot.

    IMO it's a must win. We have to take down teams like this at home to have ANY chance at the tourny. So the people saying it's not a must win should open their eyes a bit.

    The OSU game is a must win, don't kid yourself. Barring a miraculous 8 game conference winning streak, losing at home to a below average team during conference play is about as bad as it gets.

    Correct. People saying it's not a must win, open your eyes. If this isn't a must win, then what is?

    I get that, and I think everyone else does, but ISU is the better team, pretty plain and simple. If ISU cant beat OSU at home, then it would be hard to imagine anything spectacular this season.
