Time will quickly tell how fast this team learns from last night. If we dont learn to shut down a premier guard of our opponents fast, we could be looking at a very long december.

Good point, i've watched OK state a couple times this year and was far more impressed with smart than i was nash. He is strong, quick, and for the most part makes good decisions.

and PJ are a tough back court. Heslip can't create off the dribble though. Jackson plays at a chaotic pace but can break anyone down in the country off the dribble.

Rodney McGruder from K State is a unanimous first team all Big 12 guard and is off on the 3 ball this year but a very good player. Sparandling can hit the 3 consistently. It is just great that we have these games at this time of year! K State, Baylor & OSU all are similar to potential second round NCAA match-ups. OSU maybe in sweet 16 round. Butler is another great match-up relating to defending the perimeter.

This a great opportunity to watch the team grow and learn.

We should have learned from WSU, but we ignored Karno again. (albeit slower and less experienced) Everyone was slower than Paul and DJ rich.

Pierre is great, but he's only 5-11. If Gary can start defending the way he should defend, it's a better matchup for him than what he has seen the past two games. At least size wise.

Marcus Smart is another story. He looks like a 6-4 version of Pargo with more talent.
