The more I hear about FH's play calling (and massive notebook of plays), the better I feel about our chances at the end of close games.

    Plus, the overall feel of the team is good. We know we are better than everyone expected, but not so cocky that we think we can't lose to a Texas Tech. I expect that loss to keep us focused in games like this where we can show the country that we are for real.
    Umm, Babb is due for one? He just shut down MaGruder, one of the best scorers in the nation. Made his life miserable and probably the biggest reason that we won that game. I think he was held to 13 or 14, which is SHUTTING HIM DOWN.

    Didn't keep us from winning at Lawrence! That is what is so odd about this losing streak (that will end tonight).

    True, that was a "shut down," but I'm looking for Babb to go even farther with Brown tonight.

    Re: OFFICIAL: Iowa State @ Oklahoma State Game(day) Thread

    Matchups will be interesting.

    I think it'll go like this:

    Smart - Lucious (KL has to play his best defensive game of the season)
    Brown - Babb
    Nash - Clyburn (should be a great matchup)
    Murphy - Ejim
    Jurick - Niang (has to play help defense WITHOUT fouling)

    Then they sub in Forte (think Hobbit 2.0) for one of the big guys. When that happens, I think it will switch up assignments, probably moving Smart to Babb and Nash to Ejim.

    Holding a guy 2 pts below his scoring average is shut down?

    Niang is going to have his hands full with Jurick if that is the case. Everyone talks about Nash and Smart being extremely talented (which they are), but Jurick will surprise people with his skills!!!

    1989-94 - Johnny's teams were awful on the road, period
    1995 - Oklahoma State made the Final Four
    1997 - ISU was coming off a screw-job loss at Texas, a home upset by Nebraska (friggin' Tyronn Lue), and a meat-grinder win over a ranked Colorado team
    1999 - ISU was bad, OSU made the tourney
    2001 - Overtime loss
    2003 - ISU was bad, OSU made the tourney
    2005 - OSU was ranked #6
    2007 - OSU was ranked #13
    2009 - ISU was bad, OSU made the tourney
    2011 - Overtime loss
    2012 - 2-point loss

    Our posts will have their hands full with the athleticism of Murphy and Cobbins. But Jurick (and his 4 ppg) doesn't scare me at all.

    It depends. Seems like we are likely to sag off him, and I think he is capable of hitting a 15 footer consistently.

    Re: OFFICIAL: Iowa State @ Oklahoma State Game(day) Thread

    Which obscure OSU player has only hit 3 3-pointers this season? Seems like the way this typically works for us is that we play decent defense on their best players (Nash, Brown, Smart) but some dude who averages like 5 ppg will drop about 28 and be the difference.

    And the ghost of Keiton Page will make his presence known, I'm sure of it.

    Two factual errors for me in this thread already today. Time to read and not post.

    Re: OFFICIAL: Iowa State @ Oklahoma State Game(day) Thread

    I am looking forward to going to the game tonight.

    The last two years the crowds have been smaller than normal, but the way it is configured, it does not take very many people for the place to be loud.
