HIGH NOON HIGHLIGHTS (3/6): Joe Lunardi on Oklahoma State’s Chances and more.

Welcome to High Noon Highlights. A place to catch what you might have missed in Oklahoma State Athletics.

NCAA Basketball: Kansas at Oklahoma State Rob Ferguson-USA TODAY Sports

Joe Lunardi is NOT a fan of Oklahoma State.

Despite having more Top-10 wins (4) and Top-25 wins (6) than any other team in the entire country, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi is still not sold on the Cowboys.

In his latest edition of Bracketology, Lunardi has the Cowboys in the First Four Out, despite sweeping Kansas and the Cowboys have not lost to a team that is currently projected to be in the tournament.

Because of the Cowboys’ 281st-ranked non-conference strength of schedule, Lunardi says that seven of those 10 non-conference wins shouldn’t really count. That makes the Cowboys 11-13 overall and that is not a good enough record to make the NCAA Tournament.

The Cowboys are undoubtedly one of the more interesting bubble teams this season, and it will be interesting to see what they can do in the Big 12 Tournament.


Cowboys leading in Cabo

While much of the northern half of the country is trapped under snow from yet another winter storm, the Cowboy golf team is enjoying paradise. However, it’s all fun in the sun, as the Cowboys are working to defend their title at the Querencia Cabo Collegiate in Cabo, Mexico.

Through two rounds, Oklahoma State has a slim one-shot lead over California in the team standings. OSU’s Matthew Wolff and Cal’s Collin Morikawa are tied for the individual lead at nine strokes under par, three shots ahead of the rest of the field.

The final round of the tournament is underway. You can follow along at golfstat.com.


Football shows off its helmets

In early March, there isn’t a lot of college football news. As part of the #offseason, we get to look at 13 of the helmets the Cowboys have recently used and remember the gorgeous combos that the equipment managers have put together.

Noticeably absent: the throwback helmet featuring the bucking bronco from homecoming in 2014.

179 days until the Oklahoma State 2018 football season begins folks. We can do this.


Marcus Smart = Ninja

This is just crazy athletic. 6’4” 220-pound Marcus Smart got up off of his back while looking like a ninja.

Not bad for the 24-year old former Cowboy.

Also, make sure and wish Smart a happy birthday today on Twitter!


That’s it for today folks! Have a great day and Go Pokes!
