Three Thoughts

Social media was a fun place last night after the massive win over No. 1 seed BaylorMike Boynton joins Eddie Sutton as OSU coaches to take the Pokes to the Big 12 Final

• Yep – OSU has the fifth-highest odds of winning the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP in college basketball.

• Kind of wild stat here – Big 12 defenses allowed the lowest yards per game in the Power 5 this year (383.1). Mike Gundy explained defenses weren’t bad back then, offenses just had a different mentality.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said from about 2016 to 2018 the Big 12 head coaches and offensive playcallers were in “attack mode,” but offenses in other Power 5 conferences weren’t.

Two Quotes

• ESPN’s Jay Bilas shared a comment about OSU”s infractions this week that stuck with me:

Bilas dropped a heavy opinion during the OSU-Baylor game: The OSU sanctions, he said, are “a clear case of the NCAA Committee on Infractions over-punishing Oklahoma State because of the actions of one person.” That one person is infamous former Cowboy assistant Lamont Evans.


• 6th ranked win in the last 19 days.

One Question

Thoughtful piece on how we went from asking institutions to form us to affirming us (faith-based)

The Thunder can’t lose (and it’s driving me nuts) but the good part is they keep finding guys like Kenrich Williams:

He’s also shooting 55%, and 21-of-51 (41%) on 3s — heady territory, considering Williams hit 37% overall over two seasons in New Orleans.

He defends hard, and cleans the glass. If he makes enough 3s, Williams will have a role in the NBA — even if it’s just as a deep bench guy coaches trust to come in and defend.
