Oklahoma State is not a good basketball team this year, and I don't think that's a very controversial statement. The Cowboys are tied for last place in the league and owns the second worst defense, with only the 11th-ranked offense to make up for it. But in this game, the Cowboys went off.

Shooting 62% from the field and 50% from deep, Oklahoma State scored 25 points over their season average and buried the Cougars. Jamyron Keller, who averages about 6 points per game, exploded for a career-high 22 points and kept any comeback efforts at bay. The Cowboys led for the duration of the game and is an ugly loose end on BYU's tournament resume. Fortunately, the Cougars will have another shot at Oklahoma State in their final regular season game, but getting a definitive 2-1 would feel much better after their disappointing loss in Stillwater.
