It was easy for Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford to find the culprit in his team's 70-65 loss to Iowa State. The Cyclones outrebounded the Cowboys 44-28 and had 18 offensive rebounds and 21 second-chance points. "It's the only difference in the game," Ford said. "It's the bottom line.

Iowa St.-Oklahoma St. Preview

Iowa State still has a shot to at becoming only the second team to win the Big 12 since 2005, but its recent road play doesn't inspire much confidence.

For a few moments, I couldn’t for the life of me remember why I was sleeping here, in...
