Iowa State vs. Oklahoma State,
02/07/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 67 - 69
Point Spread: +2/-110 Iowa State
Today's winner is Iowa State over Oklahoma State. This is my Big 12 Game of the Month.
Iowa State is money, covering 5 straight contests. The surging Cyclones won their L3 SU, including a huge victory in Oklahoma in their latest conquest. They are only one game behind co-leaders, Baylor, Missouri, and Kansas. As a road team, they have covered 5 straight. ISU leads the Conference in 3-point FGs made, sinking almost 9 a game from beyond the arc on just about 40% shooting. The back court of Allen and Christopherson are fast. The duo are teaming up for 22.8 PPG, and have totaled 103 assists, and 26 steals. Oklahoma State has no one (or even two for that matter) that can measure up to the 6'8", 270 lb Royce White. The Forward is the only player in the nation to lead his team in points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals. The Cowboys are on a skid having dropped 5 of their L7. The teams top-rebounder, Philip Jurick has missed the L3 games with a foot injury and is most-likely not going to see any action here. Guard Cezar Guerrero has been suspended with the date if his return uncertain. The small team, full of freshman lack the experience and the depth to compete in this one. The Cyclones are 12-2 ATS their L14 games played against the Big 12. Take Iowa State. Thank you.
