Big 12 Wednesday Recap

New, 5 comments

Iowa State really took care of business in Ames, beating Drake 91-43.  Yikes.  That's either really bad for Drake's prospectus, or we've overlooked Iowa State (unlikely).  The highlight from the night is from Iowa State junior Scott Christopherson, who went an astounding 11-11 from the field (including 5-5 from downtown) and hit both of his foul shots for a whopping 29 points.  That's unbelievable...  I don't care who you're playing against.  Diante Garrett and Melvin Ejim added 14 points apiece for Hoiberg's squad.  And just like that Iowa State is 3-0.  Next up are the Creighton Bluejays (who also sit on three wins).  Great start for Iowa State so far.

In Stillwater, Oklahoma State won a much closer game against Texas A&M Corpus Christi 68-58.  The Cowboys were up four at the break, but the game was tied with 10 minutes to go.  Marshall Moses lead Oklahoma State with 17 points and 8 rebounds and Ray Penn came off the bench for 17 points.  Darrell Williams struggled, going 2-13 from the field (although he did have 12 rebounds).  Terrence Jones lead the Islanders with 18 points.  Oklahoma State definitely wanted a more decisive victory, but in the end a win is a win.  Next up for the Cowboys is a Nicholls State team fresh off an upset over LSU.
