Point Spread: Ok St -7
The 11th ranked Memphis will be hosted by 7th ranked Oklahoma state college basketball on Tuesday, 19th November. The much awaited derby is one of the nation’s premium basketball match ups and one of the very best non- conference game in over fifty years. This is the first time in over 25 years that OSU has hosted a top 15 non-conference opponent while the school is in session.
The tigers are going to put forward seniors Joe Jackson, Geron Johnson and Chris Crawford. The trio had averaged in double figures in the last season. This comes in the backdrop of 92-63 victory over Christian brothers on 8 November 2013. It has also successfully beaten Austin Peay 95-62. In this home match, six of the players netted double figures. The tigers have been ranked at regular season national polls at number 13 by ESPN and Associated Press polls. They travel to Oklahoma with a lot of positive energy.
On their side, Oklahoma State will be putting to the pitch a team led by Markel Brown and Markus Smith. The dual has won high ratings in the previous season. At the bench will be among others, Stevie Clark and Phil Forte. The dual is a high-powered combination on standby. Oklahoma has always played their home games at Gallagher-Iba Arena since 1938. The same will be repeated in this season. Led by their coach, Travis Ford, they expect to turn the table for tigers that are a hard nut to crack. This will also be the team’s fourth game in the young season. The team beat Mississipi valley state, Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Utah valley state in the last three outings. The team also hopes to return four starters and 12 letterwinnners from the last season’s squad.
The game is expected to kick off at 7 pm and will be televised live by ESPN. (Watch online at ESPN.com)
