After their massive road win over Baylor, Kansas basketball will host the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Allen Fieldhouse.
After what was undoubtedly their most impressive win of the year, Kansas basketball will take on an Oklahoma State Cowboys squad that sits at just 4-10 in the conference. Don’t sell Oklahoma State short though. The Cowboys are coming off of a dominant Bedlam series win against Oklahoma, so they aren’t a pushover. Still, the stats don’t lie. Kansas destroyed Oklahoma State on the road earlier this season 65-50, and the Cowboys’ only impressive wins of the season came against Houston and Texas Tech.
These final four games of the season will be important for the Jayhawks. If they can win out, they’ll at least guarantee themselves a share of the Big 12 title. If Kansas wins out and Baylor drops a game, they’ll win the conference outright.

Even though Kansas basketball is playing their best basketball of the season and coming off of a huge win, this game is scary. With such a quick turnaround, it could be all the Cowboys need to gain an advantage over the Jayhawks.
Still, this isn’t just any team. It’s a Bill Self coached team, and one of his very best too.
With a guy on the squad as dominant and consistent as Udoka Azubuike, it’s hard to fathom the Jayhawks having an “off night.” Plus, Kansas can always hang their hat on their defense, which ranks first in the country according to KenPom. Even the Kansas offense is top ten in the nation according to the leading analytics site, despite it maybe not feeling like it at times.
