OSU’s Marcus Smart returns to scene of backflip

Oklahoma State's Marcus Smart, who certainly will hear a lot about last year's post-victory backflip from Kansas University fans in pre-game warmups prior to Saturday’s 3 p.m. return game at KU, discussed his actions with the Journal-World at this year’s preseason Big 12 Media Day event.

Opinion: Point guard Marcus Smart shows KU what it's missing

Point-guard play becomes more important in mid-March, when Oklahoma State will be in good hands with Marcus Smart at the controls. But what will happen to Kansas, Journal-World sports editor Tom Keegan asks. • Box score• Bill Self postgame audio

What a pathetic loss. Of the two previous miracle home wins this one had one major difference, they had a two possession lead after being down by big numbers for the majority of the 40 minutes. If this does not fire up your squad to finish off an inferior team on your home court, where it is so difficult for opponents to win, then you deserve to lose because your players have obviously decided they are too good to hustle on every possession.

And Johnson handling the ball down the court for a seven second possession to possibly tie the game? He should have been the last one handling the ball here after playing so poorly during every portion of this game. A fricking Junior High sub could have stolen the ball from him. Good loss though as it was obviously time to remind the boys they are not as good as they obviously think they are. I got so mad about that last possession my dog ran out of the room and this never happens as he is accustomed to my getting upset during games and usually sleeps right through my tirades.
