    OU: A good match up for ISU?

    It appears they are reversed from last year...appears to be more guard heavy than post. Advantage ISU? Match ups as of late haven't favored ISU...maybe this one will.

    I think it is going to depend on guard play. Our big men should not be an issue. Hopefully Willie Warren wont destroy DG.

    It will be fun to see how Dendy can D up Tiny G.

    If OU comes to play... this could be a very long night for us. Heres hoping they look completely past us so we can get a win.

    Terrible matchup. Our defense of guards has been bad all year. Especially on 3 point shots.

    Of course he will be back for our game. Thats how it works out for us. He will probably drill deep 3's like he did last year in Hilton. Hope our guys can some how pull it out down in Norman, and get this ship going in a positive direction.

    Fair enough...but that is probably the case in any big 12 game. Only most of the teams we faced recently have had some downright studs in the post as well. OU doesn't appear to be that way. Advantage us...

    still gotta take advantage

    How do you feel about Brackins, Dendy and Ham in the game at the same time?

    Conceptually I like it. I think we've seen it some too. DG at the point and IMO, you can technically play Gilstrap at the 2 if he's healthy.

    The issue is, we have faced teams where we have a clear advantage inside but don't exploit it. Why I don't know.

    I like Scotty, DG/Colvin/Buck, Gilstrap, Brackins, and Dendy. Scotty can def create his own shot and Dendy is a O-Rebound machine.

    I wish Dendy can shoot free throws little better.

    I'm okay with it as long as we don't see a lot of pressure and we can close out on the shooters.

    Only we wouldn't be sliding Gilstrap to the 2...We would be using that linup to give Gilstrap a blow...Just rotate the whole frontline...giving everybody a 5 minute(debatable) rest. Assuming no foul trouble too.

    Honestly...I want to see:

    Colvin at the 1
    Gilstrap/SC at the 2
    with Dendy, CB and Ham.

    Its asking alot from a frosh...but CC adds some intangibles that we could use right now...

    Let the horses run...well sort of

    But in return, we get very aggressive O-rebound machine and energy player.
