In this article, we will provide an extended preview of both teams, their strengths and weaknesses, and make a final prediction of who we think will win.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
The Oklahoma State Cowboys finished the regular season with an 18-15 record and secured the seventh spot in the Big 12 Conference. The Cowboys are led by guard Bryce Thompson, who averages 11.7 points per game and shoots 39.6% from the field. Thompson has been a consistent performer for the Cowboys all season, and he will need to have a big game if they hope to advance to the next round.
The Cowboys have been in inconsistent form lately, winning just two of their last five games. They lost their most recent game to Texas in the Big 12 Tournament, where they scored only 47 points. However, the team will be looking to bounce back in this game and make a deep run in the NIT.
The Cowboys have been a strong team on the road this season, winning seven of their 17 away games. They will need to draw on this experience to their advantage against a tough Youngstown State team. The Cowboys will need to play tough defense and limit the Penguins' scoring opportunities if they hope to advance to the next round.
Offensively, the Cowboys have been a high-scoring team this season, averaging 70.7 points per game. They have also been strong on the glass, averaging 38.3 rebounds per game. The Cowboys will need to maintain their scoring output against the Youngstown State Penguins, who also have an explosive offense. If the Cowboys' defense fails to show up, the Penguins will take advantage and run up the score.
Youngstown State Penguins
The Youngstown State Penguins finished the regular season with a 24-9 record and secured the top spot in the Horizon League. The Penguins are led by guard Darius Cohill, who averages 17.8 points per game and shoots an impressive 51.3% from the field. Cohill has been the go-to player for the Penguins all season, and he will need to have a big game if they hope to advance to the next round.
The Penguins have been in excellent form lately, winning three of their last five games. They lost their most recent game to Northern Kentucky in the Horizon League Tournament, but the team will be looking to bounce back in a big way in this game. The Penguins have been solid at home this season, winning 12 of their 16 games at the Beeghly Center. They will need to use their home-court advantage to their benefit against a tough Oklahoma State team.
The Penguins like to play at a fast pace and have been a high-scoring team this season, averaging 80.1 points per game, which is the 18th best mark in the country. They have also been strong on the defensive end, allowing just 70.3 points per game. The Penguins will need to maintain this high-scoring tempo against the Cowboys, who have also been a high-scoring team this season.
Defensively, the Penguins will need to focus on stopping the Cowboys' leading scorer, Bryce Thompson, who averages 11.7 points per game. If the Penguins can limit Thompson's scoring opportunities, they will be in a good position to keep the game close.
