Oklahoma State cruises past Robert Morris, but loses Michael Cobbins to injury

Leave a comment

Oklahoma State eased past Robert Morris with a 92-66 win on Monday night in Stillwater, but the No. 6 Cowboys have to be concerned about the status of starting center Michael Cobbins going forward.

The 6-foot-8 Cobbins left the game 3 1/2 minutes into the contest with an apparent Achilles tendon injury and never returned as head coach Travis Ford and the Cowboys hope for the best.

Ford told the Associated Press following the game that Cobbins would be examined by doctors on Tuesday.

“It doesn’t look good,” Ford said of the injury to Cobbins.

Losing Cobbins, who has started all 13 games while averaging 4.5 points and 4.3 rebounds for the Cowboys, would be a huge loss for Oklahoma State because their frontcourt depth can’t withstand an injury to a starter with experience like Cobbins.

Despite losing Cobbins — and Marcus Smart going for a season-low seven points — the Cowboys prevailed easily on Monday thanks to 27 assists on 32 field goals.

The Cowboys will now rely on Kamari Murphy even more down low and other pieces in the frontcourt will need to step up to fill the void if Cobbins is out for any length of time.

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for me to be joined by a guest on the podcast and today, it was Jeff Eisenberg of Yahoo Sports.

Jeff is a west coast guy, so we spent some time talking about Pac-12 hoops and USC vs. Oregon. We also got into Kansas-West Virginia, Purdue’s win over Michigan State and Denzel Valentine vs. Buddy Hield.

And like me, Jeff is a bit of a beer snob, so we did have a chance to chat about some of our favorites early on. At this point, I should be sponsored by Bell’s.

Anyway, you can listen to the podcast by clicking “play” on the Soundcloud player embedded below. Or you can do so through either iTunes or Stitcher if you so choose. Thanks for listening!

VIDEO: Kentucky’s ‘Dancing Guy’ has scary fall while carrying girl

Kentucky’s ‘Dancing Guy’ has turned into a fan favorite at Rupp Arena.

Every home game, during one of the TV timeouts in the second half, ‘Mony Mony’ will come on, Dancing Guy will hop into the aisle and he’ll break it down like only a middle-aged white guy from Kentucky can.

As you can see, it didn’t quite go all that well for Dancing Guy on Tuesday night, as he tried to do a rail slide while holding a young, female fan and completely ate it.

Here’s another angle of the fall:

It looks much scarier that it actually was, as all reports indicate that everyone made it through the fall healthy.
