Big 12 Capsule: Oklahoma State

Cowboys doing a little bit of everything right this season.

Oklahoma State

Record: 11-1

Strength: Versatility

Oklahoma State isn't really great in one area, but they're good in a dozen. The Cowboys rank 52nd in adjusted offensive efficiency and 49th in adjusted defensive efficiency. They shoot the ball pretty well (just outside of the top 100), while holding teams to not as great a percentage (40th). They hit the offensive glass well (55th) while keeping teams off it (19th). But the Cowboys only rank in the top-35 in two categories: the aforementioned defensive rebounding percentage and in steal percentage (7.5).

Weakness: Turnovers

Oklahoma State's opponents have an even higher steal percentage, thieving the ball 9.1 percent of the time. And Oklahoma State turns the ball over 21 percent of the time, just slightly above the D1 average. The Cowboys also aren't great shooting from the three-point line, making just 33.1 percent of their attempts.

Star Player: Marshall Moses, F

Moses rebounds like you would expect a 260-pound guy to, grabbing up 8.4 points per game and excelling on both sides of the glass. He's also the Cowboys' leading scorer at 17.3 points per game and is shooting 57.6 percent from the field. He's in KenPom's top 200 in offensive rating, effective field goal percentage, true shooting percentage and offensive rebounding percentage. He's also a top 300 player in defensive rebounding percentage.
