Game Notes: Oklahoma State vs. Texas


Game Notes: Oklahoma State vs. Texas

.


The Cowboys made their first shot... and it was called off for traveling.When it rains it pours.When the announcers said Texas was off to a fast start with five points in five minutes... well it gives you an idea of how these teams have been playing offense.I had a thought before the game that I would trade a little defense for some offensive and in a way Matt Corral Jersey, they did.The Cowboys made an obvious effort to push the ball more in transition butit mostly led to missed layups instead of missed threes early on.The refs calling the game very tight.Obviously not the WVU crew.They especially love to call walks.The Longhorns made an open three off a terrible fumbled pass.When it rains...Thomas Dziagwa looked healthy and man did the Pokes need it.Run stuff to get him open looks every time you don't shoot a dunk.Boynton injected the Boones early for some energy after trying Anderson and Hidde and it seemed to definitely provided a spark.The Cowboys made an easy layup... and it was called off after a horrendous charge call.When it rains...Avery omgFinally some life to this team and GIA.Can't believe I'm saying that after a 25-point half, but hey, progress.The bench outscored the starters 17 to 8.More than double.Their energy was a major shot in the arm. Same starters in the second half.I expected this, but... first sub takes less than a minute.Kalib Boone for a three-foul Women's Ole Miss Rebels College Jerseys, zero-point Yor Anei.Lindy finally makes a shot... after the whistleOklahoma State finally has some energy and then Texas randomly decides they can shoot. Ugh.What kind of technical gives you a single free throw and no possession? Every time we have positive momentum this season it seems like there's a timeout to disrupt it.I know this is more of a college basketball in general problem, but when things are going poorly it feels like everything is working against you.Kalib Boone with so. much. energy.Aaaaand an open three for Texas... energy drained.I think it's has happened three times this game that the Cowboys have built some heavy momentum that's stymied by a wide-open Texas three.Not ideal. How many 1-and-1 front ends have we missed during this stretch? Five?Ten?Nine-thousand?LINDY!Gallagher-Iba trying to breathe a little fire...Aaaand another wide-open three.And another.Back to sleep GIA. Cowboys finally score some points but can't get a stop when they need it.Remember when I said trade a little defense for offense?Need a little more value on that trade.Cam McGriff, one of the only consistent FT shooters this year, cannot hit a FT. When it rains...At least there was a little more energy today, but the defense can't relax that much. Different path, same result.Cowboys still searching for answers and a Big 12 win Alex Grado Jersey. 7-0 feels like seasons ago.
