Oklahoma State Beats Texas A&M without Le'Bryan Nash

With Oklahoma State's top freshman Le'Bryan Nash on the bench with an injury, a win against soon to be SEC Bitch Texas A&M would be tough. The shift in the lineup however, seemed to work and the Cowboys rolled to a 60-42 victory in GIA.

So how'd they do it?

For starters, the Cowboys played great defense, limiting the Aggies to just 16 second half points. Texas A&M had just 2 points in the final 5 minutes. Brian Williams continued to impress with a team high 17 points. Markel Brown had 12 points and Keiton Page finished with 15. Oklahoma State also got big minutes from Mike Cobbins and Phillip Jurick. Marek Soucek went on a little run in the second half that was impressive. It was just a nice team effort.

Oklahoma State improves to 14-15 overall and will begin the prep for a big Monday game against Kansas. It will be the final regular season game in GIA this year. The Cowboys will then travel to Manhattan for a regular season road finale against Kansas State.

I'm very pleased with the way we're locking down GIA this year. It's becoming a tough place to play again, even with the limited fan support. There is no reason we can't whip Kansas on a big stage Monday night. Go Pokes.
