Game 29: No. 15 Kansas at Oklahoma State – Preview and Prediction

Kansas absolutely needed a win on Monday night against Kansas State, and its players delivered. KU came through with a smothering defensive effort against the Wildcats, and they’ll need to bring that intensity to avoid an upset in Stillwater on Saturday.

Game Info and Notes:

  • Saturday, March 2nd, 2019, 11:00 AM CDT
  • Gallagher Igba Arena – Stillwater, OK
  • CBS
  • At 10-5, No. 15/16 Kansas is tied with Baylor for third in the Big 12 race with three games left in the league season. KU is one game behind Kansas State (11-4) and Texas Tech (11-4).
  • For the 22nd time in the 23-year history of the Big 12, Kansas has clinched one of the top four seeds and a first-round bye in the upcoming conference tournament. In 22 Big 12 championships, KU has been a No. 1 seed 15 times (including each of the last 10 years), a No. 2 seed four times, a No. 3 seed twice, and a No. 5 seed once (in 2000).
  • Kansas is 6-3 against the current Associated Press top-25, with victories against No. 6 Michigan State, No. 7 Tennessee, No. 10 Marquette, No. 11 Texas Tech, No. 16 Kansas State and No. 24 Wofford.
  • KU leads the series with Oklahoma State, 115-59, including a 36-35 record in contests in Stillwater. OSU holds a 35-34 edge in Gallagher-Iba Arena.
  • Kansas head coach Bill Self will be meeting his alma mater for the 33rd time in his head coaching career and the 29th time as the head man at KU. Self, who was a four-year letterwinner for the Cowboys from 1982-85, is 19-13 against OSU, and 18-10 while at Kansas.
  • Redshirt-junior F Dedric Lawson leads the Big 12 in scoring at 19.0 ppg, rebounding at 10.3 rpg, and double-doubles with 17, which ranks tied for ninth nationally. The last conference player to lead the league in scoring and rebounding in the same season was Blake Griffin of Oklahoma in 2008-09.
About the Cowboys

At 10-18 and 3-12 in Big 12 play, Oklahoma State is one of the worst teams in the conference. Kansas shouldn’t have any business losing to the Cowboys, but they’ve shown they can go on the road and lose to almost anyone (hello, West Virginia). The Cowboys surprisingly battled Texas Tech to the limit last time out, as they fell in OT.

Cowboys to Watch

Cam McGriff – Junior, Guard, 6’7″

McGriff is having his best season as a collegiate. He’s averaging 12.3 PPG, which leads the team and is up from a mere 8.4 in 2018. He’s been held in single digits in each of his four games, but in the previous meeting with KU, he scored 22 points, which was his highest output in Big 12 play.

Lindy Waters – Junior, Guard, 6’6″

Waters is lethal from three-point range, as he’s shooting 45.6 percent from deep this season. He’s very capable of hitting four or five threes and burning you, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him to that on Saturday. He single-handedly brought the Cowboys back to force OT against Tech on Wednesday by hitting seven three-pointers.

Prediction

Kansas 79 – Oklahoma State 72

Kansas has no margin for error. They have to win out. Oklahoma State isn’t good, and barring a Lindy Waters three-point barrage (which will probably happen now), I don’t see them having enough to beat the Jayhawks. Give me Devon Dotson to have a huge game and to impact it greatly.

Bobby Norell

My name is Bobby Norell. I'm from a small town in northern Indiana. I recently graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Sport Communication. Even though my diploma says I'm a Hoosier, my love for the Jayhawks has never wavered. They'll always come No.1.
