Coming from a guy who played roughly a combined 47 seconds of defense in his entire high school career, that was a very entertaining game of basketball.
Oklahoma played really well in the 2nd half, but ISU fell apart quickly when adversity started to set in. And that's starting to become too common of a trend for the Cyclones this season.
My #HotTake on why: I don't think this team likes each other as much as Cyclone teams in the past. Times get tough and they quit playing together and try to do to much individual stuff and be the hero. Can get away with it more often at Hilton with the crowd behind you, not so much on the road.
The Brittany Greiner chant towards McKay was outstanding......speaking of which, I may be late to the party on this but the Arizona State student section is crushing it in this department with The Curtain of Distraction. http://youtu.be/g4b4V7hLvY4
Main issue that may haunt ISU during the tournament though in my opinion: Free Throw shooting. ISU leaves too many points at the line and leads to too many empty possessions. Could kill them in a close tournament game.
Then again, going to be tough to win a lot of tournament games giving up over 90 points too.
