The North Texas Mean Green and the Oklahoma State Cowboys meet in an NIT quarterfinal matchup in college basketball action from the Gallagher-Iba Arena on Tuesday night.

North Texas Mean Green Recap

The North Texas Mean Green booked their spot in the quarterfinals thanks to a 75-55 win over Sam Houston State last time out. Tylor Perry led the Mean Green with 23 points with 6 threes along with team-highs of 7 rebounds and 6 assists while Rubin Jones had 17 points with 5 threes and 5 rebounds. Kai Huntsberry added 11 points with 4 assists while Aaron Scott had 10 points with 5 boards and a pair of steals to cap off the group of double-digit scorers in the win.

Oklahoma State Team Recap

The Oklahoma State Cowboys punched their ticket to the quarterfinals thanks to a 71-60 win over Eastern Washington in their last matchup. Bryce Thompson led the way with 22 points including 6 threes, while John-Michael Wright had 11 points with 3 threes and Tyreek Smith added 11 points on 5 of 7 shooting with a team-high 10 rebounds for the double-double to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Oklahoma State in the winning effort. Quion Williams added 9 points with a team-high 4 assists as well in the win.


North Texas is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games following a win and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games following an ATS win while the over is 7-2-1 in their last 10 games following a win. Oklahoma State is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games overall while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall.


I’m leaning towards the under here. This should be a pretty good game, but these are still two solid defensive units and two teams that don’t necessarily play a fast-paced style, especially the Mean Green, who are still the slowest-paced offensive unit in the country. I’ll back the under in this one.
