OSU Basketball Notes

Former Oklahoma State point guard Fred Gulley has found a new home to play college basketball. As it were, it just so happens to be his home.

The Fayetteville, Ark., native has enrolled at Arkansas and plans to play for his hometown Razorbacks next season. Gulley watched the team practice on Monday, according to reports.

Gulley unexpectedly left OSU in December after seeking and being granted his release from the university. It isn't known yet whether Gulley will be on scholarship or will be a walk-on for the Razorbacks.

The 6-foot-2 point guard was averaging 4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists for the Cowboys through eight games this season. He started the first seven games of the 2010-11 season before missing the rest of the year because of a season-ending shoulder injury that required surgery.

Coming out of Fayetteville High School in 2009, Gulley was a three-star recruit and rated as the No. 15 point guard in the nation. He picked OSU over Arkansas and Missouri.

Odd Tweets from Nash

I know nothing outside of what is said in these Tweets from LeBryan Nash but I thought them to be worth mentioning based on the amount of attention they received when he posted them Monday on his Twitter account, @LeBryan_Nash02.

Nash has been pretty honest about not liking playing in the post and prefers to play his natural position at small forward.

It has become more and more evident that, because of OSU's lack of size, Ford is likely to keep him as a power forward tweener this season.

Here are the Tweets:

"Im not let this man hold me down from being great I got two much on the line"

Then soon after: "4 < 3"

Not sure they mean anything other than simply vented frustrations but this is what makes Twitter a dangerous thing.

It wasn't all bad, though. He also Tweeted "Turning point" and "Just keep believing n us."

I'll go on record saying I do not think there is a serious problem here but it was a prominent enough topic Monday afternoon to warrant mentioning.

Missouri comes to Stillwater

If you haven't seen Missouri play this season, know this: The Tigers are the most complete team in the Big 12 Conference.

Missouri is up to No. 2 in the nation in the most recent polls and is guided by four senior starters. Here is a quick glance at what the Tigers will be bringing into into Gallagher-Iba Arena on Wednesday.

Missouri (18-1, 5-1 Big 12) is stacked, especially on offense, and the stats speak for themselves. Mizzou is No. 4 in scoring offense (83.4), No. 3 in scoring margin at a whopping 19.8, No. 2 in field goal percentage (50.9), No. 5 in free throw percentage (77.1), No. 16 in assists per game (16.6), No. 1 in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.58), No. 13 in steals (9.2), No. 7 in turnovers (10.5), No. 6 in turnover margin (5.2-to-1) and No. 6 in fouls per game (14.1).

That is the benefit of having a seasoned, veteran basketball team. Missouri is coming off an 89-88 victory over then-No. 3 Baylor in Waco, where OSU lost by 41-points last week.
