The Cowboys look to improve their record to 9-1 tonight as they take on the Missouri State Bears. The Bears are 6-2 on the season with losses to Tennessee and Tulsa and wins over a bunch of not-great teams, with Arkansas Little Rock being the least not-great of the bunch. Pomeroy (if you are into him) has the Bears ranked at #41... mostly based on rating out well in offensive efficiency stats thanks to a nice eFG% and a low turnover percentage. (if you are curious, Pomeroy has Oklahoma State ranked at #51 overall)
Missouri State gets the bulk of their scoring from their frontcourt players with Forward Kyle Weems (14,8 ppg) and Center Will Creekmore (12.4 ppg) leading the way as the top two scorers on the team. Darrell Williams and the fellas inside will need to continue the nice job they have been doing defensively, maintain position, and try to avoid fouling as they Bears shoot 76% as a team from the line.
And if you are in the mood for some streak watching... Marshall Moses has made 14 shots in a row from the field over his last two games... so look for him to extend that to at least 15, and maybe to 30.
The game will can be streamed on ESPN3.
