Wiggins, Jayhawks Look For Sweep Of Season Series At Oklahoma State Saturday

Posted by Washington Tucker on 2/28/2014 8:53:30 PM

Andrew Wiggins has arrived. The feeling is he will only get better. Wiggins has averaged just over 16 points per game for the fifth-ranked Kansas Jayhawks, which have won four-straight games to climb atop the Big 12 standings. Next up is a rematch with the Oklahoma State Cowboys, a team the Jayhawks beat earlier this season, albeit a game in which Wiggins struggled. The freshman star finished with just three points on 1-of-5 shooting as Naadir Tharpe and Joel Embiid took over, but as the March Madness betting continues to creep closer, consistency is the one aspect of his game that Wiggins is looking to improve on. He’ll look to avoid getting in to it with Marcus Smart again, as those top prospects were involvd in some tense moments the first tme around.

Kansas Jayhawks @ Oklahoma State Cowboys

Saturday March 1, 2014 – 9:00 PM ET

Gallagher-Iba Arena, Stillwater, Oklahoma

CBB Sports Betting Line: Kansas – 2.5

The Cowboys pushed Kansas to the limit in the first meeting between these programs, going down to the wire before losing 80-78. Oklahoma State has the weapons to keep up with the Jayhawks, as well as the home advantage this time around, so they have to feel they can get the job done as they continue to try and turn things around.

CBB Betting: Kansas

Wiggins has been Kansas’ best player to this point in the season, and he will be looking for a better performance in his second game against the Cowboys after he struggled in their initial meeting. Embiid stole the spotlight in that game, scoring 13 points and grabbing 11 rebounds, while somehow posting eight blocks. That was a big reason why the Jayhawks were able to outscore Oklahoma State by 12 in the paint, as Embiid’s eight blocks tied a Big 12 freshman record. He and Tharpe will look to repeat with big performances in this game, with the hope that Wiggins can also step up for Kansas. Wiggins got in to it with Smart in the first meeting, as the animosity between those two reached a boiling point.

The Cowboys got one of their best performances of the season off the bench from Phil Forte III the last time these teams met, but they need more out of their big men in order to come out on the right side in this one. Forte had 23 points and five rebounds in that loss, and was a big reason that game was so close, but he can’t be their best player if they are going to win. Smart had talked a lot of smack about Wiggins prior to the season, and was right in the middle of some pushing and shoving that led to six flagrant or technical fouls in the first meeting. Smart’s Cowboys have won back-to-back games after a brutal seven-game losing streak, and an online betting win would be a major boost to their confidence.

CBB Betting: Outlook & Pick

Oklahoma State managed to keep the first meeting close despite being on the road and all of the nonsense that took place, and they should have a renewed focus heading in to this one, with a chance to really help their confidence. Kansas has been the best team in the Big 12 this year, but Wiggins struggled in the first meeting between these programs, and if he struggles again then the Cowboys could steal an important win.

CBB Betting Pick: Oklahoma State Cowboys + 2.5
