Georgia State Shocks Baylor, And It Gets Late Early For The Big 12

Last March, Oklahoma State — with Marcus Smart, a top-six NBA draft pick — was the eighth seed in the Big 12 tournament. That eighth seed in the Big 12 Conference was higher than the No. 9 seed the Cowboys received in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. Seeing Oklahoma State as the 8 seed in an above-the-rim Big 12 quarterfinal against top-seeded Kansas made it hard to think that the Big...

Celtics Notes: Marcus Smart Shines For C’s In Return To Sooner State

The Boston Celtics’ trip to Oklahoma City was a homecoming of sorts for rookie Marcus Smart, who played his college ball just up the road at Oklahoma State. “It felt good,” Smart told reporters after his team’s matchup with the Thunder. “It felt good to be back out here in a familiar territory.” It showed on the court. The Celtics fell to the Thunder 122-118, but Smart...

Former OK State Guard Marcus Smart Going Off On Cowboys Fans Who Want Travis Ford Fired

Former Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart only played two years of collegiate ball, and seemingly had enough talent around him during his stay. But apparently, his new head coach, Brad Stevens of the Boston Celtics, was quoted as implying that Smart was asked to do a bit much during his time in Stillwater. It’s somehow led to Smart going on a Twitter rant about Cowboys fans. Here’s...

Are you concerned about Marcus Smart's flopping?

As the Celtics continue to shake-out players acquired through moves made thus far this season, attention should now start to fall onto guys striving to be this team’s core unit.

Did Marcus Smart snub Bill Self?

After Marcus Smart got drafted No. 6 overall by the Boston Celtics, he went around to his table for hugs, handshakes and congratulations.
