Big XII: Standing O for Pokes

By Jean Neuberger - March 09, 2007

The Ford Center crowd is as raucous as it's been since the first game this morning, as OSU is playing about as well as I've seen them play in a long time. They've taken the ball out of Acie Law's hands, and once again it's paid off. OSU is in the midst of an 8-2 run, and they've got the ball and a 17-15 lead with 7:16 to go in the first half.

The key this time has been defense. The Aggies are having trouble under the Pokes, who are playing a stifling man-to-man defense. Twice already in this game, Texas A&M has failed to get a shot off in time, something the Aggies rarely do.

The crowd (I'm guessing around 16,500) is back on its feet, as the Pokes have the ball and are moving upcourt.
