No Sochan and an injured Akinjo last matchup.

No JTT for sure… wondering about Flag and Cryer…

I anticipate we win the battle on the glass, turnovers, and behind the arc. Bears win by 8 on the road.

Any reason to think we won't have Sochan today? He played well against TCU on Saturday.

I think Flag should play..these Saturday-Monday quick turnarounds are tough on his knee . we'll see.

Hopefully our guys are fired up for revenge. Injury issues or not, this isn't the kind of team that we should be giving up a sweep to.

At least we have almost a full week of recovery for our plays for Saturday. Jeremy and Kendall should have good games tonight.

May be the last time Ice Likele suits up against us. I have really liked his physicality against us in the past, and we struggled with it. He's been a really solid program player for them.

Avery Anderson has been playing better recently. I thought he'd be averaging more points this season. He's super quick.

They have a lot of guys that can switch on screens. Hopefully we can get Cisse matched up on our guards.

Saw Flagler is a game-time decision and a plan for Cryer will be decided next week. Would love to be wrong, but I don't think we see Cryer tonight.

Doesn't mean much but Cryer made the trip. Not sure about flag

Baylor truly has a rough road the rest of the way out, if Cryer and Flagler can't get on the court. With JTT out, the heartening reality is that Akinjo and Bonner simply are not going to be the guards that can take this team anywhere close to big time glory. Need Cryer and Flagler.

My biggest heartburn comes from the reality that MBB may be in line for another royal ass-whopping on Saturday......this time on home court and with the nation (and tourney seeders) watching. Really am hoping not.

Settle down Bob, even if that happened we can still make a run of we get guys back at the right time

If we stop the reverse roll cuts (Kansas and OSU are by far the best in the Big 12 at them) and force them to shoot from the outside, we will win by double digits. If we don't, we may lose by double digits. We did a poor job of handling those cuts in Waco. Here's to hoping we handle them tonight.

From a video I saw on Twitter, looks like Flagler may be in and Cryer out.

Did we have players out the first time we played OkSt?

Sochan was out; Akinjo played hurt

Thank you. I thought we weren't at full strength, but couldn't remember who was out.

How many bounce pass at the knee turnovers to Thamba am I gonna continue to see? So stupid.

Great pass by Akinjo! MM and 1!
DanaDane

Do we have anyone who can rebound?

That was the most egregious over the back I've ever seen that was not called

Sochan in the game for Thamba. Please.

And passes to him where even if he catches it he can't do anything with it, like the one we just saw

Rebounds are 6-5.

BTW: Don't know what our record is for longest shutout of an opponent at the beginning of the game, but our record for beginning of game futility was over 12 minutes.

They are going to let OSU hack

It is now. It was 6-2 when I posted.
