NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma State at Kansas Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, your daily rundown of all the things you might have missed yesterday in Oklahoma State Athletics.

Kendall Smith Awarded Big 12 Newcomer of the Week

In the Cowboys’ incredible upset of Kansas in Lawrence this past weekend, Kendall Smith dropped a game-high 24 points on 10-of-16 shooting and 2-of-3 from beyond the arc. He also added five rebounds and five assists.

People noticed.

Against TCU, Smith had 13 points on 5-of-9 shooting from the floor.

It is the first weekly award any member of the Cowboys has gotten this season.

Chris Lacy Gets NFL Combine Invite

Former Oklahoma State receiver Chris Lacy received an invite to the NFL Combine in Indianapolis at the end of the month, according to his agency’s Twitter account.

Adam Lunt summed up how impressive this actually is.

The NFL Combine will take place Feb. 27 - March 5 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Mike Gundy Excited Watching Super Bowl

Last night’s Super Bowl featured a lot of offense, a lot of points, a lot of yards and not a lot of defense.

Wait. That sounds familiar.

.Sounds quite a bit like the Big 12, doesn’t it?

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy seems to think so.

In the Eagles’ first Super Bowl victory, there was 74 total points, 1,151 total offensive yards, 54 first downs, two turnovers and one single punt. People everywhere praised the game for the exciting conclusion to the end of the NFL season.

However, the Big 12 is blasted for the exact same thing week-in and week-out.

Maybe this is the year that everyone realizes how much fun the Big 12 really is. One can hope.

Get Mike Boynton to the Colvin!

After the upset win over Kansas, Oklahoma State student Aaron Hester started a campaign to get Mike Boynton to come coach his team in an intramural game.

Boynton agreed - but first Aaron has to get over 13,000 retweets.

It may seem like an odd number, but that is the number of seats in Gallagher-Iba Arena.

Boynton is always campaigning for a sell-out crowd - and tomorrow night against Baylor is no different.

Aaron is currently just over 2,000 retweets, so he needs some help.

Coach Boynton also needs your help. Show up and support the Cowboys as they take on the Bears at 7 p.m. in Stillwater Tuesday night.
