OU (18-12, 8-10) is ahead of four Big 12 bubble teams, Baylor, Kansas State, Texas, and OSU, in most bracket projections, but they don’t want to lose the momentum created with back-to-back home wins.
Just when you believe Devonte Graham and the team is on a roll, the Big 12 Champions took a mental break and dropped another game to Oklahoma State. It’s a lot easier to win when they’re not trying to overcome a double-digit deficit like they had to do nearly all of February. Lightfoot averages only 3.7 points and has only cracked double digits twice this season. Oklahoma is 11-3 ATS in the last 14 meetings between these two teams.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys (18-13) have won three of their last four games including an 82-64 victory over Kansas. Eight of the league’s 10 teams are ranked top 44 by KenPom. Azubuike is putting up 13.7 points and 7.1 rebounds per game for the Jayhawks as he’s been the only big man Kansas can fully trust this season. “I think we need to get better this week and to prepare for them”. 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 of wins.
The games in Wichita are on Thursday, March 15th and Saturday, March 17th.
The Jayhawks once owned the Sprint Center, but it’s been a house of horrors lately.
The Sooners, on the other hand, have not been playing with the same degree of urgency, even with their chance to make the NCAA Tournament field in real danger of slipping away. The problem – Oklahoma is starting to figure a few things out. But a combinations of injuries and bad stretches of basketball eventually took out the completion, allowing the Jayhawks to once again reign supreme. Trae Young is still an elite scorer, and with him on the court, the Sooners are really hard to guard. Contrary to Oklahoma, Cowboys games tend to finish under the total (64.3 percent).
