Can Oklahoma State Pull Off Upset Over Streaking No. 6 Kansas
With their NCAA Tournament hopes pretty much shot, the Oklahoma State Cowboys will look to get a huge, NIT Tournament-boosting upset win over the sixth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks in the worst way. Whether they’ll get it or not remains to be seen, but the Cowboys will definitely be going all out when they host their longtime conference rivals in their Big 12 regular season finale on Saturday.

Kansas has won five straight and comes into their regular season finale off an 80-70 win over Texas on Monday night that saw Svi Mykhailiuk score 17 points and Devonte Graham add 10 points and 11 assists in the Big 12 title-clinching win on Senior night. The Jayhawks took the lead less than six minutes into the game and never looked back as Udoka Azubuike scored a game-high 20 points on 10-of-11 shooting from the field to boost his national-best field goal percentage (77.1%).
"We didn’t play great tonight," Bill Self said. "We played great in stretches though, first half especially. It’s nice to end your home season on a win so the guys can go out in style."
Oklahoma State has won two of its last three games and comes into this contest off a solid 80-71 win over Iowa State on Tuesday to complete their regular season sweep of the Cyclones. Jeffrey Carroll scored 21 points and Cameron McGriff added 19 points in the win, even though
"Jeff was terrific on both ends of the court. He was very engaged defensively," coach Mike Boynton Jr. said. "Once he found his rhythm around the rim, he got his jump shot going."
Kansas Vs Oklahoma State Final Score Prediction Analysis
The Jayhawks are playing some of their best basketball of the season at just the right time and will not lose this game to a clearly inferior Oklahoma State squad, making the spread the only thing that college basketball bettors have to worry about in this affair.
While the Cowboys hung with the Jayhawks in their 84-79 road loss to Kansas on Feb. 3, I don’t think their second meeting this season will be quite as close.
Again, Kansas is playing excellent basketball right now and they’re going to be very focused as they want to boost their hopes of getting a high seed in the NCAA Tournament. Oklahoma State has lost seven of its last 11 and should fall in this one to the Jayhawks by double digits.
