• The Cowboys had some struggles with Youngstown State in the first half but this is what you really need to know about the Cowboys’ 69-64 first-round win:

The Penguins entered Wednesday scoring 82 points a game while shooting 49% from the field and 37% from 3. Then they played the Pokes.

OSU held Youngstown State’s high-scoring attack 18 points below its season average while the Penguins shot just 36% from the field and 29% from 3. The Cowboys especially locked the Penguins up in the second half, where Youngstown State was 9-for-31 (29%) from the floor and 3-for-13 (23%) from 3.

• Liked Jenni Carlson’s commentary on Ted Lasso, loved that season three debuted this week
• Excited for the Dallas Cowboys to add a solid cornerback for a fifth-rounder

Appreciated this take looking ahead for the OKC Thunder:

Now, with Shai Gilgeous-Alexander firmly established as one of the finest scorers in the league (and also a very good defender!), and Josh Giddey making strides as a creative point guard, adding more knockdown shooters who can widen driving and passing lanes for those two will be an essential next step.

The addition of Holmgren, who has missed his entire rookie season, will help solve a problem this team has allowing shots at the rim and finishing there on the other end, too.
