Nerdalicious Numbers: Oklahoma State Basketball Week 4

Oklahoma State has gotten off to a great start, but took the first lost of the season on the chin last week. Let's take a look at the numbers!

Jeff Blake-USA TODAY Sports

It's been a hot start to the 2014-15 campaign for Oklahoma State Men's Basketball, but after another win adding to their undefeated start, the Pokes suffered their first loss of the season.

Le'Bryan Nash did not play against North Texas due to academic issues. In his absence Phil Forte scored a career high 32 points, and Michael Cobbins and Anthony Allen also scored in double figures in the dominant win over the Mean Green.

Travis Ford and company then went on the road to South Carolina where things took a turn for the worse.  The Gamecocks held the Cowboys to a horrific 24.6% shooting (20.8% from 3) and blocked 8 shots in a smothering defensive performance.  The hot handed Phil Forte disappeared on the road as he scored just 5 points, shooting 7.1% from the field and 10.0% from 3.  Nash was back in the lineup, but after a slow start he finished with 13 point, 10 rebound double-double.

Beyond Nash, the next two highest contributors were Jeff Newberry and Mitchell Solomon with 8 and 7 points, respectively.  The only other notable statistic from this game was that Anthony Allen missed his first shots of the season, going 0-2 from the field.  Assists were few with 7 total, and turnovers were abundant with 12.

The Cowboys are currently one of the worst passing teams in the Big 12, averaging a mere 11.5 per game. Not great. Here's an statistical overview of how the team did last week, how they stack up compared to the Big 12 and the NCAA, what games they have upcoming, and how the players are statistically coming along at this point in the season:
