Hilton Coliseum | Ames, Iowa OKLAHOMA SOONERS 14-6 (5-3 Conf)IOWA STATE CYCLONES 15-6 (5-3 Conf) Joe Linardi projects Sooners & Cyc’s in 2013 Field of 68ISU is looking like one of the Last 4 IN group Linardi on Feb 1: 9 Oklahoma 11 Iowa State w/OU & ISU Tied at 5-3 in the dicey Big XII Sooners are said to have less-productive BackcourtOU is, clearly more deliberate than many (esp ISU)And OU has gained just 12% of their Points from their Backcourt Oklahoma’s Lon Kruger GuardsCreate more Defensive havoc than Scoring & Assist-Driven Offense OU Fingerprint seems to specialized proficiencySooners 4 Guards combine to produce the BEST Assist | Turnover % in Big-XIIIn fact, seeing OU Grooms at #1 with 2.5 Assist/T-Over %Is hard to fathom, since Grooms doesn’t startAnd is 7TH in Minutes Played on Sooners While Oklahoma is somewhat undistinguishedIowa State’s numbers make them hard to MISSBOTH Good & Bad ISU Lucious MOST Turnovers in Big-XII (3.52/Game), yetISU is the Top Scoring Team in Big-XIIISU is the Top Tempo Team in Big-XIIISU’s McGee is the BEST Three Point Shooter in Big XII (55-124) 44%ISU is 12-0 at HomeISU has a modest 3 Game Win Streak
FRONTCOURT: Advantage CyclonesISU Eljim & Clyburn are distinguished Boardmen (#2 & #5 Big XII) ISU is a little streaky & erratic & they’ve played few close gamesISU last loss came at hands of inadequate Texas TechCyclones have also had difficulty outscoring potent teams
Yet, the Cyclones are just very good at Home (especially in the Conference) &Oklahoma has been equally difficult issues w/scoring droughts Lastly, Iowa State probably MUST continue to win all their Home GamesDue to Cycs less-than-powerful S-O-SOU is #1 in Big-XII Strength of Schedule Normally, the pressures of NEEDING Wins to stay viable would be concerningThis may not be the case with IoStIowa State is the most experienced Team in Big-XII (#23 Effective Experience in NCAA) Really like Iowa State here
