Oklahoma State had much success in their game against Iowa State by passing the ball to Le'Bryan Nash who would get double or tripled teamed and pass the ball out either for a wide open three or a cross court pass to an open teammate for an easy drive. Oklahoma State inexplicably stopped doing this strategy and Le'Bryan Nash reverted back to driving one on three. Several times his teammates didn't even rotate over to help him and receive a pass. Oklahoma State blew a sixteen point lead and lost and fell to the eighth seed. Texas Tech is the tenth seed. Tech has the coaching but doesn't have the talent to play “tubby ball”.
If Oklahoma State wins they will play Kansas on ESPN2 on Thursday at 2 p.m. which should also be available on ESPN3.com. If they win again they will end up back on ch 41.1 KMYT on Friday at 6 p.m. most likely in a rematch with Iowa State. If Kansas wins then they would probably play Iowa State on ESPNU.
