No. 2: Jeffrey Carroll continues to shine
Carroll lead all scorers with 23. He added 7 boards and 3 assists as he continues to be the Cowboy’s most consistent player offensively. Carroll has made a one year leap unlike any Cowboy in recent memory. After averaging 8.2 PPG on 41% shooting a year ago, Carroll has upped those numbers to 16.4 PPG on 57% shooting from the field. It seems like when Carroll has the ball in his hand and he looks to attack the basket, he cannot be stopped. Add in his 40% shooting from behind the arc, and you’re looking at one of the best players in the Big 12 this year. I want to see the ball in his hands more in crunch time moving forward. I know Evans gets all the attention and accolades, but Carroll is playing at a much more consistent level right now and is healthier than Evans. If he can continue at this level of play and Evans gets back on track then we have a shot at ending this season on a high note.
