Kansas (19-5, 9-2 Big 12) will host rebuilding Oklahoma State (12-12, 5-6 Big 12) Saturday afternoon in Lawrence with a whopping 17 points-plus spread, but head coach Bill Self sees potential for the Cowboys to cause problems for KU, who have lost their last two road games to Iowa State and Mizzou in part because of guard play:
"They're fast. I don't know if there's a team in our league more athletic. They've got more highlight dunks and things like that than anybody in our league probably has. Markel Brown may be the best athlete in our league. (Brian) Williams is an athlete. Nash is an athlete. (Michael) Cobbins is an athlete. They've got good athletes. They're a lot like us in the fact they don't go that deep, although they may be a little deeper than us when they have the two big guys ( healthy. I assume they'll both play. I like their team, and they run good stuff offensively. They can give us all kinds of problems.
