Kind of surprised their defense is ranked better than ours. Even more surprised that our defense has fallen to #21 on KenPom. We were in the top 5 not too long ago. I'm curious what's going on there.

Gremlins. It'll sort out as we get back in groove
That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier

We're going to see some zone tonight.

If we shoot well - and we don't simply rely on the three ball... we win.

Also, rebound!!!! We should get some offensive boards.

Interested to see how we defend Cade. And like Vanilla said rebounding is again a key. They killed us on the glass the first half of the last game. Anyways thinking a solid 8 point win. Could be a grind but without Likekele I like our chances if he indeed doesn't play

Last game they made more free throws than we took, and Boone went 10-15 from the floor. It's because they were able to penetrate our defense with the pass or dribble.

They have athletic guards. Avery Anderson is quick and Likele is big and quick.

We have to do a good job rotating.

I'll be interested to see if we double Cade. OU was doubling him - and he's a very good passer.

Can't be here tonight. BUbET, VB, IB.....you gotta bring us home here! I don't want to look up later and see a loss or I'm holding you responsible!!!!!!!

They were pretty bad against Iowa State.

I love the back-to-back 3-point baskets by Jared Butler to start the Baylor scoring this evening.

Flagrant 1 on the no neck ref for poking #5 in the eye.

If you like offense, then this is your kind of college basketball game so far. Baylor dominating the team rebounds with an 11-2 advantage.

Don't know why, but this game has not injected me with the usual level of excitement.

Contain Cunningham, rebound, play high intensity defense, shoot fouls, WIN!

I would have preferred the 3, but the rebounding looked good and we got the free throws.

And OSU is missing shots!

Mayer going off! Making it hard for Drew to rotate him out
