Happy Monday! Even if it was ugly, any win over Texas in Austin is a good win. Back at it this week to get ready for West Virginia. Here are Monday’s High Noon Highlights.
Scott Sutton receives a warm welcome:
After the announcement of the hire of Scott Sutton, who was a player at Oklahoma State from 1992-1994, the basketball team welcomed into his new position as assistant coach. Sutton was announced at the open practice in Tulsa.

Oklahoma State has done something no other program has done:
The Oklahoma State Cowboys were the first team to ever beat the Longhorns 5 times in a row in Austin.
No other team has accomplished this before. And Cowboy Football took to Twitter to make sure recruits knew that. Oklahoma State recruits heavily in Texas, and this is a nice accomplishment to have in those kid’s minds.
How good is this Oklahoma State defense?
The Tulsa World’s Mark Cooper wrote a great piece about the Oklahoma State defense after the game in Austin. He talked to Glenn Spencer after the game on Saturday, and its clear how proud he was of his guys’ performance on Saturday:
“It’s hard to put into words how proud you are of your group because they worked so hard and for them to have the rewards and stay focused like they did, but to realize it’s all about next week now,” Spencer said. “Got to get ready for next week now or everybody will be telling them how bad they are.”
Cooper then goes into how well this defense played on Saturday, but with the realization that this defense still has more test to face. With West Virginia coming next week and Bedlam the week after that.
That’s all for today folks! Have a great afternoon.
