Iowa State returns to the floor for the first time since January 9th against Oklahoma State. The Cyclones more than likely will be short handed tonight as they continue to deal with the effects of COVID-19. While we do not know who will be available tonight there is a small beacon of hope on the opposing side. One of the nations best players Cade Cunningham for Oklahoma State may not be available for the Cowboys this evening.
Oklahoma State is coming off a 15 points loss to Baylor which at one point they had the Bears on the ropes before losing grips. According to KenPom Oklahoma State is the 38th ranked team in the country. Their offensive efficiency ranks 52nd in the country and their defensive efficiency ranks 37th. What will bode well for Iowa State in this one is the Cowboys don’t turnover teams as some of the previous squads that Iowa State has faced do. This will be a good things for a depleted teaming playing it’s first game in over two weeks.
