Texas Gambling Preview
Texas battled with Baylor and had it since near as a two-point game halfway through the half that is second. But, from that true point on, the Bears level and tenacity was way too much while they pulled away for a fourteen point win.
After dropping back-to-back games to Baylor and Oklahoma the Longhorns find by themselves in a tie that is four-way second place with West Virginia, Oklahoma and Kansas in the conference race. It is going to be a battle until the weekend that is final Texas Tech sitting just a half-game straight back.
Andrew Jones leads Texas in scoring at 15.1 points per game. He could be coming down a game that is huge Baylor in which he put up 25 points.
Courtney Rames is second on the united team in scoring (13.8) and leads the group in assists (4.1). Freshman Greg Brown is averaging figures that are double11.4) and leads the team in rebounding (7.5).
The Longhorns are ranked 13th by Kenpom. The offense is 16th in efficiency and the defense ranks 22nd.
Oklahoma State Betting Preview
Oklahoma State is currently listed as a 7-seed by bracketologist that is most, but victories will be difficult to come across down the stretch. The Cowboys will simply be preferred in 2 of these eight games that are remaining
To make the tournament the Oklahoma State cannot afford to lose to either Kansas State or Iowa State and probably needs to find one win in their sex games against Texas, Kansas, Baylor, Texas Tech and Oklahoma (2x).
Oklahoma State is led by star freshman Cade Cunningham. Cunningham leads the united group in scoring at 18.1 points per game and it is shooting 39.7% from three-point range.
Isaac Likekele (10.8) and Rondel Walker (10.1) would be the other Cowboys averaging figures that are double. Likekele has only shot 15 threes, but is shooting 46.7% from distance.
Kenpom has Oklahoma State as the 36th team that is ranked the united states. The offense 50th in effectiveness whilst the defense ranks 35th.

When these two teams met in Austin earlier this season it was a battle the way that is whole Texas escaping with a 77-74 triumph. It had been a battle of two of the finest freshmen in university baseball as Cunningham scored 25 points and Brown set up 24.
Courtney Ramey struggled with foul difficulty and just played nine mins. This time, Texas’ height will be a big key to victory if Ramey and Brown can stay on the floor. The longhorns are expected by me to stay away from difficulty and protect the 2 points.
Texas 75, Oklahoma State 71
