Why Iowa State Will Win
Can Iowa State go the entire Big 12 season without a win?
It hasn’t won a game of any kind since before Christmas, but the team has played well at times with a good fight in a 77-72 loss to Baylor, it didn’t get annihilated in either game against Oklahoma, and in general, the team plays just well enough to not get embarrassed.
At least, most of the time.
The team has a good pace to see games within range, it hits everything on the free throw line, and it’s not bad a defending the three. But …
Why Oklahoma Will Win
You don’t go 2-21 without having a whole slew of issues.
The Cyclones don’t rebound well enough, they turn it over a whole lot, and consistent shooting has been a problem. They haven’t hit the 30% mark from three in any of the last three games or in five of the last seven.

What’s Going To Happen
The last win over Iowa State was the last win for Oklahoma, period – that was back on February 20th.
The Sooners really, really, really need a good performance after losing four straight, but it’s going to take a while to get there. Iowa State will be plucky and annoying for about 25 minutes, but the Sooners will finally wake up in time to pull away late to move on.
There’s not going to be anything pretty about it, but it’ll be a win.
