What to watch for: 🏀 Texas vs. Oklahoma State

Mitch Lovell

While the Oklahoma State Cowboys are at the bottom of the Big 12 standings, this game will still provide a test for Chris Beard’s group. Texas has struggled to win in Stillwater lately as they are just 1-4 against the Cowboys on the road in their last 5 trips.

Ahead of Saturday’s 1:00 pm tip at Gallagher-Iba Arena, here are three things to keep an eye as Texas looks to leave Stillwater with a road win.

1.      Can Marcus Carr keep up his all-conference type play? In the first two conference games Carr is averaging 19.5 PPG on 52% from the field. If he can keep up that shooting percentage it will greatly boost the Longhorns offense. Carr is a player who can create for himself and others, but efficiency is something that hasn’t always been there.  Point guard Courtney Ramey is a player that can benefit from Carr’s high level of play.

2.      Will forward Dylan Disu play more minutes? Disu is a player that can take this team from good to great. He’s being brought back slowly from injury and has played just 15 minutes a game so far in conference matchups. If his playing time can rise to 20-25 minutes a game, you will see improvement on both sides of the floor. Disu is the best rim protector and rebounder the Longhorns have to offer.

3.      How will the Longhorns shoot the ball from beyond the arc? As a team in conference play they are shooting just 34 percent from three.  While this isn’t awful statistically, it could be better.  Raising this even a few percentage points would help the Longhorns’ offense tremendously. As it’s been shown in games against Gonzaga and Seton Hall, this is an offense that struggles to score at times. Shooting the ball better from three will open up the floor for everyone therefore creating easier shots.
