Bring on the Big Boys... Conference Play Day!

Ahearn at Night by carolinaksu

Tomorrow Kansas State enters into the part of the schedule that no longer includes teams like 3-9 Texas Southern, 0-10 Alcorn State, or Sister Mary Peter’s School for Youth. No, tomorrow begins a journey into the lands of Giants and the need to re-charge the Octagon of Doom. The Wildcats begin conference play with a trip to Stillwater, OK and a date with the Cowpokes.

Oklahoma State enters conference play at 10-2. The losses were to Virginia Tech and Gonzaga, two teams that the Cats have already beaten. The wins have all been equal, nothing too impressive. The best win according to the RPI would be against Missouri State. Here’s the rundown on OK ST:

OKST Strengths

Keiton Page: Guard, 13.9 ppg, 33.8% from 3land, good outside shooter and one of the few experienced players.

Marshall Moses: Forward, 17.1 ppg, 8.1 rpg, while he’s only 6-6, Moses can be a bit to handle. Also experienced as a senior.

Prediction:

It’s always tough to go on the road to start conference play. Curtis Kelly is still out for the game but the team has seemed to pull together and find their stride in the last four games. Whether that was for real or an act is going to be seen now. I say it stays close until the end, but depth wins out and K-State gets the victory.
