As the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) continues, the Oklahoma State Cowboys and Eastern Washington Eagles are set to face off in an exciting matchup on Sunday, March 20 at 2 p.m. EDT in Stillwater, Oklahoma. With March Madness predictions and brackets circulating, we take a closer look at both teams and offer our expert pick for the game.
Oklahoma State Cowboys
The Oklahoma State Cowboys had an up-and-down season in the highly competitive Big 12 Conference. While they finished with a losing record in conference play, they did manage to notch some impressive victories against ranked opponents throughout the season. One of the keys to their success has been their ability to win close games, as evidenced by their 3-2 record in one-possession games.
Offensively, the Cowboys have been led by Bryce Thompson and Caleb Asberry. Thompson, a transfer from Kansas, has been a key player for the Cowboys this season, averaging 11.6 points per game. Asberry, a sophomore guard, has been one of the team's most consistent scorers over the last 10 games, averaging 13.5 points per game.
While their defense has not been one of their strengths this season, the Cowboys have been solid on the offensive end. They have averaged 66.2 points per game in their last 10 games and have shot 40.4% from the field. They will need to continue to score at a high rate if they hope to advance in the NIT tournament.
