Excuse me while I clean the vomit up.
Oklahoma State's Jean-Paul Olukemi missed a desperation 3 before the final buzzer that allowed the Jayhawks to escape with the win. Keiton Page scored 23 points and Olukemi added 17 for OSU, which dropped to 19-13 and is expected to be an NIT participant.
I'm not a big fan of moral victories, but this falls into that category. The Cowboys went toe to toe with one of the best teams in the country. Now they'll get to play in the NIT, and compete for a chance to play in NYC. Who doesn't want an excuse to party in the NYC for a few days? It is what it is.
I really like this Jayhawk team and think they will go deep into the tourney. They played like complete shit today and weathered the Okie State (Musberger Reference) storm.
I'm excited to see what a guy like LeBryan Nash can do for this team. That seems to be what we are missing.
