Oklahoma State Cowboys

The Oklahoma State Cowboys are coming off an awful season a year ago in which they won just three conference games. The lack of success cost Travis Ford his job as he was fired. The new man taking over is Brad Underwood who did a great job with Stephen F. Austin. He has some talent to work with at Oklahoma State and it shouldn’t be long before the Cowboys are back in the running in the Big 12.

The Cowboys will get a big boost this season as Phil Forte III returns from injury. He played just three games last season but two years ago he averaged 15 points per game. The Cowboys did lose Jeff Newberry in the off-season but not much else. Oklahoma State added Cameron McGriff who should start up front and they have a talented freshman guard in Lindy Waters III.

2016-2017 Oklahoma State Cowboys Betting

Oklahoma State is going to be a lot better in 2016-2017 than they were a year ago. They have a good backcourt led by Forte and Jawun Evans who was averaging 12.9 points and 4.9 assists per game a year ago before he got hurt. Jeffrey Carroll averaged 8.2 points and 4 rebounds per game and should be fine as the third guard.

Leyton Hammonds should get one of the two starting spots at forward along with Mitchell Solomon.  Hammonds is the best rebounder on the team and he is capable of putting up double-digits in terms of scoring on a nightly basis.

Oklahoma State Cowboys Picks

The Cowboys have a very good backcourt that should keep them in a lot of games this season. The question is how much the Cowboys can get out of the frontcourt.  Hammonds is a good player but Solomon is pretty much all defense with very little scoring.

The Cowboys probably don’t have enough overall talent or depth to be a contender for the Big 12 title this season but they should improve enough to finish with a winning record and make a postseason tournament like the NIT or CBI.
