    lose at OU in front of about 2500 people in a postponed due to weather game from last night.

    even though we lost to them, i think this is good for our chances to finish in the top half of the league standings. also, puts a bit of the quash on the idea that Baylor was "coming together" and playing good basketball.

    and, while OU also nearly blew a double digit lead....they went deep in the shot clock with their possessions which shortened the game (we didn't) and a lot of time BU made mistakes or had a breakdown and sent OU to the line (where we missed a 3 with about 20 secs on the shot clock). If this game is 3 minutes longer from what i saw, BU wins by 5 or 6.

    if we can get to 9-7, and there's a logjam at 8-8....good for us re: possible Dancing. I think UT, KU, ATM, MU (rpi 30, a couple tough road losses and favorable remaining schedule) are locks. i think the XII will get 5 and that 5th spot will be CU, NU, or Baylor. i don't think all 3 teams can play their way out of the 5th spot....but one or two might.

    9-7 with at least 1 win in the conference tourney should get us in the discussion but 2 of those remaining wins will need to come out of the MU, A&M, KU, UT games. We desperately need some more quality wins.

    A shame we couldn't have beat them.

    It's also worth noting that lowly OU (with a loss to Chaminade), is now tied for 3rd in the Big XII standings at 4-3.

    Baylor is 4-4 with CU, while Mizzou and Corn are 3-3

    Indiana upset 20th ranked Minnesota tonight which is good for CU. We need all the help we can get. Their record is bad but they are playing better as they've beaten Illinois and Indiana and only lost @MSU by 1 in OT

    OU and Tech are a combined 7-2 in their last 9. OU's days are numbered however, they've had a favorable last two weeks with Tech, ISU and CU and BU in Norman. they still have Kansas, Mizzou, and another dose of Horn and Aggy....and both games against OSU. if they win 2 of those 6 games they've done well.

    looking at the remaining schedule, i can see KSU getting back to .500 at the end of conf play.

    Their upcoming road games at ISU and CU are huge for them. It lightens up a little, but KU, Texas and Mizzou still loom. I don't know if we want them to do well and have our win (and hopefully two wins) look good, or have them fall apart so they're not in any consideration for the tournament

    Okie Light beat Mizzou in Stoolwater. Probably not the best thing to happen as it keeps the Pokies tourney hopes alive

    OSU is 15-7 (3-5) with a visit from OU coming up
    Mizzou is 17-5 (3-4) with our Buffs headed to Columbia

    Go Buffs
    Beat Mizzou

    We've got too good of team with a great coach, and we made a huge splash early in the season, plenty of headlines. I'm glad we didn't sit back and relax against the worst team in the conference.
