After two lackluster road trips in the past week, Red Raider basketball limps back home for a Tuesday night match up with Oklahoma State.

I've grown tired of the lame excuse that we're in bind with the lose of Zach Smith. Of course it has had an impact on this team that was hitting on all cylinders when Smith went down with a serious ankle injury.

With that said; you've got to shoot the ball better than at a 34% clip from the field, play some defense, hit some free-throws, get up off the mat and play like we know you can play.

I'll be at the United Supermarkets Arena on Tuesday night hoping this talented team wakes up and gets the job done against a very good OSU team.

Tip-off is at 6 p.m.
