Key stretch for Cowgirls
By Mike Baldwin
OSU hosts Kansas State Sunday afternoon at Gallagher-Iba Arena. The Wildcats are the surprise of the Big 12 after a 5-0 start. The Wildcats are a fundamentally sound team but are more like a Princeton, where they execute plays well but aren’t nearly as athletic as the Cowgirls.
Did you enjoy Budke’s response following the loss to Texas, the Cowgirls first league loss? Budke basically dodged questions that there was a 23-10 foul difference which led to a 15-point edge at the free throw line for the Longhorns.
Budke has said repeatedly his team isn’t talented enough to play average and win in a conference like the Big 12. The next two home games are huge since the Cowgirls host the two teams tied for first. Kansas State is first up on Sunday followed by Baylor, which invades Gallagher-Iba on Feb. 5. Sandwiched in between is a road game at Colorado.
If OSU can win at least two of the next three the Cowgirls would reach the halfway point at 6-2. It’s a tell-tale three-game stretch that should reveal a lot about OSU.
