Iowa State vs Oklahoma State Game Preview
Why Iowa State Will Win
So how does Iowa State pull up from its nosedive?
The threes have to start falling.
They’re not getting a lick of luck lately from the outside, they’re not getting to the free throw line, and they’re struggling to come up with enough easy points off of turnovers to make up for the problems on the outside.
Oklahoma State doesn’t make its free throws on a consistent enough basis, it’s the worst team in the Big 12 from three, and it’s awful on the free throw line.
Why Oklahoma State Will Win
Oklahoma State’s defense makes up for the offense.
It generates a whole lot of mistakes and makes plays on the move, the D generates a ton of blocks, and the aggressive style comes through on the offensive boards with enough second chance points to matter.
How bad has Iowa State been from the outside? Against the solid Texas Tech and TCU defenses it hit 8-of-52 from three and is way too inconsistent overall.
The Oklahoma State pressure should be enough to keep that going. Big 12 opponents are hitting way under 40% from three.
What’s Going To Happen
Iowa State just isn’t showing well enough, and Oklahoma State isn’t the team to go against if you’re struggling from the field.
The Cowboys might not be winning a ton, but the D has been good through the rough 4-7 run.
There won’t be anything pretty about this game, but it’ll be a tight throughout and close late. Oklahoma State will get the late defensive stop to survive.
