Time for another Big 12 edition of “What I think I know, what I'd like to know” which really just leaves more questions than answers. Going in standings order (as of today).
What I know – size doesn't matter, they've proved it time and time again, they make it work.
What I'd like to know – can they win the Big 12 without winning at Allen Field House? Why does Missouri run some prevent O late in games? I hate when it looks like they slow it down, I'd like to see them continue on the gas pedal.
What I know – Tyshawn Taylor can bring it. Despite the over magnification of his game, he's averaging 19ppg in Big 12 play and 44% from the 3pt arc for the season.
What I'd like to know – is Jeff Withey really the key to this thing? It seems to me when Withey is playing well along with the big 2 of Thomas Robinson and Taylor they have a chance for a very productive March.
What I know – tons of talent.
What I'd like to know – what's missing? Their losses have been to Kansas and Missouri and haven't taken the step to be in KU's league when this was their year to prove it. Is it coaching as has been the not so silent whisper throughout the league?
What I know – I'd rather not face ISU in the Big 12 tourney if I'm KU or MU.
What I'd like to know – what exactly is Royce White? And does it really matter? Very good college player with seemingly some questions as to what he is at the next level. Can they win away from Hilton Magic?
What I know – I kind of overvalued the Cats non-conference. They are about where they should be, mid pack, around .500 in the Big 12.
What I'd like to know – what are the Wildcats 'givens', what can be counted on consistently? K-State does ______ well? I'm not sure.
What I know – J'Covan Brown takes what J'Covan Brown wants.
What I'd like to know – are they tourney worthy? Middle of Big 12 pack and 0-6 vs the Top 25 .. at this point it's a no.
What I know – good energetic team at home
What I'd like to know – does Markel Brown do anything but dunk? Allegedly he's shot some 3s. I refuse to acknowledge. He only jams and jams very well.
What I know – I believe in Lon Kruger.
What I'd like to know – will it turn around quickly at OU?
What I know – this has not gone as planned in College Station, did Mark Turgeon really know something when he got out?
What I'd like to know – if this season is just a wash for Billy Kennedy due to his health issues?
What I know – Billy Gillispie this there
What I'd like to know – how I can avert my eyes until he brings this thing back? I do not want to have to watch any more of the Red Raiders march towards 0-18.
