Why Oklahoma State Will Win
The Cowboys have been hot for the last few weeks with a controlled, measured style with a strong defense from three, plenty of steals and blocked shots, and keeping every game in range.

Why Oklahoma Will Win
The Sooner defense isn’t bad at guarding from the outside, too.
No one has hit 30% from three in the last three games, and they were all on the road. OU is finally back in Lloyd Noble after being away since February 6th – it hasn’t lost at home in 2021.

It should come down to turnovers. Oklahoma State gives the ball away way too often, and Oklahoma doesn’t.
