The Oklahoma State Cowboys have gotten plenty of scoring and defense in building a 3-0 record. The Cowboys stayed unbeaten with a one sided 69-52 rout of Towson in a game that was marginally competitive early. OSU did plenty of scoring but it was their defense that set the tone with Tigers limited to just 25% marksmanship including 4-21 from the perimeter. That couldn’t compete with the Cowboys 47% accuracy and 7-18 on threes. The Cowboys received 18 points from Chris Olivier and 17 points from Jeffrey Carroll while Jeff Newberry and Joe Burton netted nine points apiece.
The under is 7-2 in George Mason’s last 9 neutral site games. The over is 6-2 in Oklahoma State’s last 8 overall and are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The numbers give the edge to the Cowboys but no line has been released so please check back…
