The Bears start this week on the road against Oklahoma State after falling to #7 Kansas Saturday.

In addition to losing to the Jayhawks Saturday, The Bears also lost 6'9" forward Tristan Clark.

Clark, a sophomore, suffered a season ending injury just as the Bears seemed to have gotten their feet under them.

Now, the already young and in-experienced Bears will have to reorganize and regroup in order to finish out the season strong. 

When asked about how his team will push past these two losses, Kansas and Clark, Head Coach Scott Drew started talking football to explain just how they plan to tackle the obstacles ahead of them. 

"You have a loss, the good thing is you want to get that taste out of your mouth so you have a chance to play soon. So, put together a simple game plan for them and then after that we'll have a week to work on some things that we can implement. We got a lot of guys that care about each other, a lot of guys that want to win. So now it's just putting them in position to be successful," Coach Drew said. "We're in football country, I mean if you've got a drop back quarterback and your offense is all spread offense, that's great. But, now if you go to a running quarterback, you better put in the wildcat. So, we gotta figure that out. So we'll put in new things offensively, defensively, to put these guys in the best position to be successful."

Tip off is set for 8 p.m. Monday.
