OSU basketball: Cowboys' season ends at hands of hot-shooting MI

OSU basketball: Cowboys' season ends at hands of hot-shooting MI

With less than three minutes left in regulation, Oklahoma State was scoring 1.47 points per possession in the second half and MI 1.63, according to Gasaway. Oklahoma State had four turnovers in the game's first five minutes and compensated by putting the clamps down on the defensive end of the court. Friday's first-round matchup between the Spartans and Sun Devils will be nationally televised on ESPN2. The Wolverines seized an edge with just inside 10 minutes remaining, and they got separation as time wound down.

"(We are) excited to be here in the NCAA Tournament, especially here in SC.

There isn't a lot of tournament experience on this team. "Looking forward to the atmosphere, so thank you for having us". While Winston, Ward and Langford have more time at MSU, Bridges is nearly certainly a one-and-done player. She wasn't quite ready to be a scorer for us and lead. "It's the kind of thing we've always envisioned and for it to be happening around this time is pretty special". We never expected Tori to have to score 35 or 40. "We know we have our hands full and we know we have to be dialed in come Friday".

IN and Iowa will also get to host games in the first weekend of the tournament. "It is a great experience to play here". The Big Ten, however, isn't all that far behind. I've been impressed with what they do in transition.

With the regular season over in the Big Ten, it's time to figure out who belongs in the NCAA tournament (hint: Minnesota, PSU, maaaaybe Wisconsin), and who doesn't (lots of other teams). Maryland is really physical.

Big Ten Conference play is one week away.

Moreover, this is the 31st NCAA Tournament all-time trip for the Spartans. It just is. It's not saying anything negative.

"I couldn't be prouder of a group of guys". We got a couple stops in a row, three stops in a row.

"That was definitely the start we wanted", Goodwin said of the three-goal period.

Michigan State plays in the Richmond Spider Invitational, where they'll face Campbell, Richmond, and Cornell, teams that are 268, 244, and 76th in RPI.

The national sports media had this game circled with two of the best offensive teams going toe to toe with the promise of a rare first-round classic with two teams seemingly under seeded.

MI has appeared in seven Final Fours; 1964, 1965, 1976, 1989, 1992, 1993 and 2013. Majority can shoot three-pointers. They're deep and strong.

What concerns me most is the lack of depth.

"You go 11 for 15, that's hard enough to do in a gym by yourself", Underwood said. However, OKST is far more reliant on one player (Evans) to make plays than MI, who shares the load a bit more. That's as a tough minded, competitive person that puts a jersey on at our level in the country. "I did not like what I was seeing in the first half because the pressure that he was seeing - he was deferring again". Her tenacity is unbelievable, and everybody matches it around her.

All eyes will be glued here, as each team's best player plays point guard. "Keeping them off the boards is going to be a challenge". They've won only one NCAA game since 2006 and will have to wait at least another year to improve on that.

1 Did last year's loss have an effect on this season?

On getting her teammates involved against the Sun Devils. "I think he's a good player".

It took mere seconds for Wagner to spark his team. We've got your back.
