Going into Saturday’s game at Baylor, I wasn’t as alarmist as some in the media about OSU’s chances for the NCAA Tournament.
After Saturday, I may be changing my take.
Now, I’m not at all ready to bury the Cowboys. Things change. Things changed last year, drastically, as OSU rallied late to The Dance. And this is still a team somewhat in transition, with a freshmen point guard and several other inexperienced parts.
But this leopard must change its spots — and fast.
OSU is a bad shooting team, the Big 12′s worst. Worst in overall percentage. Worst in 3-point percentage.
If there’s a bright side, the Cowboys should be better, which means they can get better.
With James Anderson, Obi Muonelo, Marshall Moses and Keiton Page in play, it’s hard to imagine these Cowboys being this bad: 43.4 percent; 36.8 percent in conference games.
That won’t get it. Not in the Big 12.
There are too many good squads in this conference this year. For the Cowboys to be one of them, NCAA Tournament good, they have to find their shooting stroke.
