Jim Littell and Cowgirls Continue Success
On Senior Day in Gallagher-Iba Arena, the Cowgirls took care of business, knocking off TCU 85-72.
Loryn Goodwin dropped 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds, along with five assists and four steals.
Braxtin Miller had 20 points to go along with eight rebounds, six assists and two steals.
Kaylee Jensen notched her 45th career double-double with 18 points and 13 rebounds in her final game.
With the win, the Cowgirls finished their season with a 20-9 record and an 11-7 record in Big 12 play. The 11 Big 12 wins are tied for the most in Cowgirl history.
Since Coach Littell came to Oklahoma State, the Cowgirls have become accustomed to this kind of success.

Up next, the Cowgirls will travel to Oklahoma City to take part in the Big 12 tournament. The matchups have not been announced, but they will play sometime on Friday, March 2.
The Cowgirls will likely be watching the Oklahoma-Texas game intently tonight. They will likely be rooting for the Longhorns to win. If the Sooners lose, both Oklahoma schools will end with an 11-7 conference record. With both the overall record better and the season sweep of OU in their pocket, Oklahoma State would end up with the No. 3 seed, behind Baylor (28-1, 18-0) and Texas (24-5, 15-3)*.
*The Texas record reflects a win tonight against OU.

Blanc is an assistant coach at NC State. His wrestlers have “recognized him as being instramental in their training and development throughout the season, in addition to his leadership mat-side during the championship event.”
The Wolfpack had eight All-American wrestlers this season, helping to validate Blanc’s award.
Cowboys have long shot to avoid opening weekend of Big 12 Tournament.
Mark Cooper of the Tulsa World went through the only possible scenario if the Cowboys will avoid the first weekend of the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City.

Lemme tell you. It’s a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG shot. The Cowboys need to win out and then they need a lot of help from teams not named Texas or Baylor.
However, it’s not over until the fat lady sings!
Have a great day everyone!
