Yet Another Bad Beat - OU (1)

I could go on and on dropping many not-so-clever sports cliches on you at this point, but I'll save both of us the time.

For the 2nd game in a row the good guys needed one more bucket or one more stop, neither of which they could get done.

They are 5 points away from being 3-0 in the league and 13-1 overall and in all likelihood ranked as of this morning. Instead they are scrapping from here on out to keep post season hopes alive. Coming from 0-16 only two seasons ago, it's a nice problem to have though.

A&M went 5 minutes in the 2nd half without a point as OU's zone defense really frustrated A&M's offense. This was the case all day long as the Aggies only shot a season low 37% from the field.

I was glad to see Josh Carter play 27 minutes. It was strange that after playing so much in Stillwater on Wednesday that Red White didn't even touch the floor against OU. It was also good to see Martellus come in and throw his weight around for nearly 10 minutes. He however took one ill-advised shot and didn't see the floor again.

Why were Pompey and Walker on the floor for the last possession for the second game in a row?

They are at K-State tomorrow (Fox Sports - 7:00) and at Iowa State on Saturday (ESPN+/Ch. 51 in Houston at 12:30).

If they have any hope of making the tournament as an at-large team they must split their games (worst case) this week.

Carry on.
