I waited a while to think about this before writing anything. I was covering the Big 12 Wrestling Championships on Saturday but watched Oklahoma State's overtime loss to Iowa State.

What to Watch for: Oklahoma State (Round Two)

This is the game that many picked out as the most important on the Jayhawk’s schedule before the season. And why not? Oklahoma State was a close second, if not the favorite, to win the Big 12 and this late-season matchup had impact game written all over it. But that is why we play. Little did we know that KU would have clinched at least a share of their 10th straight conference...

Baylor wins biggest game of the season 76-70 at No. 8 Oklahoma State

On paper, No. 8 Oklahoma State should have dominated Baylor. The Bears had lost five straight games, they had trouble even getting to the stadium, they were without their best player in Kenny Chery and Baylor hadn’t won a road Big 12 game this year. That’s why you play the game. Baylor entered this afternoon’s game 1-6 in Big 12 play with their only win coming against 0-8...
