NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma at Oklahoma State

Kansas State will be looking to rebound from a disappointing loss at Texas A&M, so it might be the perfect time to head to Stillwater for a matchup with Oklahoma State. Pistols Firing Blog’s Kyle Cox joins the podcast to tell us why the depleted Cowboys are reeling after the departure of three players two weeks ago (and one much earlier in the season) plus a season-ending injury to little-used reserve Trey Reeves (yes, Big Country’s son) left second-year coach Mike Boynton with just seven scholarship players on his roster. Still, there are some shooters and they’ve proven themselves capable of playing an effective zone defense, so this won’t be easy for K-State.

Of course, no road game ever is in the Big 12, and we discussed whether that depth could save or cause the demise of KU’s infuriating streak. Oklahoma State clearly won’t be in that mix this season, but Kyle explains why there are plenty of reasons to believe Boynton can eventually turn things around. We also discussed how the young coach compares to Bruce Weber and Frank Martin, plus touched on Brad Underwood, another coach both fanbases coveted at one time.
