Big XII: Defensive Showcase So Far

By Jean Neuberger - March 09, 2007

We've had more blocks and steals by both teams than points, but Terrel Harris's 3-pointer off the board has given Oklahoma State the early 5-3 lead with 15:07 to go in the opening half.

So far, OSU is doing exactly what they need to do to win this game. The pace is frantic, and although they're making slip-ups, they're forcing a lot of turnovers from the Aggies and are frustrating them with the tempo that's being set early on. No doubt Billy Gillispie will want this game slowed down in a major way. When the game is this fast, it takes the ball out of Acie Law's hands more, and that's the LAST thing A&M wants.

The atmosphere is electric tonight, as OSU fans are yelling with all they've got. I love watching these four crazy college kids with sombreros and orange body paint...they look insane...but they definitely add to the flavor that is this tournament.

A&M has just tied it with two free throws from Acie Law...we've got 14:05 to go.
