All my body English at home could not send this shot in the hoop. (KC Star)Just a quick update on the hoop action of the day this Saturday night. Missouri and Kansas were easy winners over Iowa State and Nebraska today. Kansas tried to look distracted, but eventually just put their foot on the Cyclones' neck. Big men Cole Aldrich and Jeff Withey were the center of KU action. Missouri was only ahead of Nebraska 28-26 at half, and it was the usual Nebraska slog, until Miguel Paul caught fire and pulled Mizzou ahead to coast to a 70-53 win. Kansas State was the lone loser. Unable to shake Oklahoma State, the game, in the 30s at half, was a back and forth defense affair. It came down to one last shot. Jacob Pullen was able to drive down the court and put up a lay up attempt, but it just slithered off the rim. Oklahoma State made two last foul shots and the game was out of reach. K State could not shoot over the Cowboy's zone D. James Anderson, the Okie State point guard, scored 30 against the Wildcats. Everyone was very disappointed by the loss at home.
Texas got blown out by UConn. Poor guard play. Not no. 1 any more.
