The Big 12 conference is gearing up for an exciting showdown on Tuesday evening, as two teams are preparing to face off for the first time this season. The highly ranked Kansas Jayhawks (14-2) will be visiting the Oklahoma State Cowboys (8-8) in Stillwater. The game is set to start at 9:00 pm Eastern Time.
The Jayhawks maintain a steady tempo during their games while restricting their opponents to an average of 66.3 points per game. Kansas exhibits a formidable defense, with opposing teams shooting a mere 39.1% from the field (30.9% from deep). Additionally, the Jayhawks are experts at limiting their adversaries to just 14.7 free throw attempts per game.
In the meantime, Oklahoma State has experienced a 3 game losing streak prior to this match. Similar to Kansas, their success will heavily rely on a solid defensive performance. Oklahoma State adopts a slightly slower pace than usual, limiting their opponents to an average of 68.1 points per game. On top of that, their adversaries have a shooting percentage of 42.5% from the field and 32.0% from beyond the arc. In terms of offensive output, Oklahoma State falls short in comparison to the majority of teams in the Big 12. With an average of 72.8 points per game, they rank second to last in the conference.
Both squads main attribute is their defense, a slower pace approach might not provide a flashy viewing experience but certainly a more stable matchup. Taking a look at this matchup, Kansas is able to match Oklahoma’s defensive output while still maintaining threat on the other end of the court.
Kansas continues to be a heavy favorite for this matchup, with Oklahoma most likely not able to find a way to stop the onslaught.
