OSU Hoops: Cobbins Happy At Home?
Travis Ford paid Michael Cobbins a major compliment this week, calling him the team’s MVP over OSU’s last six games.
Not Marcus Smart. Not Markel Brown.
“I’ve been very proud of Michael Cobbins and I would repeat that,” Ford said. “Obviously we’ve had other players who are doing well, but Michael Cobbins is really doing a lot of things inside that are almost changing the games for us.
“He’s blocking shots, rebounding, scoring points, running the court. We’re not getting some consistent play out of Philip (Jurick) the way I want to, so (Cobbins) is having to double up down low at times.
“In the Big 12 it’s just a battle. It’s as physical as it is in any league and Michael’s down there doing it night in and night out and really doing a big job of helping us.”
Indeed, Cobbins continues to make rapid strides in his return from an early season broken toe that cost him the first month of the season. Gradually, he’s returning to the form that created so much buzz about his abilities as a redshirt freshman a year ago.
Cobbins would love nothing more than to keep it going tonight, with the Cowboys in the vicinity of his old stomping grounds at Texas Tech. An Amarillo, product, Cobbins always looks forward to these trips to west Texas.
