GIA should be full to the brim when Bill Self and Kansas come calling on Saturday, Feb 7, for a 1:00pm Central tilt on ESPN.
Those present will get a special treat, as the 1995 Final Four squad will be honored at halftime. Bryant "Big Country" Reeves, Randy Rutherford, and Chianti Roberts led the Cowboys to their highest season win total at that time (it's now #2 to the 31 wins posted by the 2004 Final Four squad).
The highlights above are great to watch, and Dick Vitale talking about Chianti Roberts slayed me. He later referred to GIA as "Cameron Indoor Stadium West" in OSU's win over Kansas.
Here's the Final Four game against UCLA, who would go on to win the Finals...
Ah, yes, those were the days...
Here's the complete roster from that season (starters):
Reeves and Rutherford carried the offensive load, averaging 53% of OSU's points per game. But this team's identity was on defense, where they regularly smothered opponents. Vintage Eddie.
