Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on all things Oklahoma State Athletics.

It’s high noon...

Shaq and Big Country:

Shaq isn’t one to say much of his old opponents. One player that does stick out in his mind is Bryant “Big Country” Reeves. He said during TNT’s pregame show “Two guys I could never figure out,” “Muresan and that damn Big Country.”

Berry Trammel of the Oklahoman took a look at the career of Reeves against O’Neal.

The next two Januarys, Reeves had really good games against O’Neal – 16 points and 10 rebounds, shooting 7-of-13 from the field, while Shaq had 24/12 shooting 9-of-18, and 24 points and 11 rebounds, shooting 11 of 15, while Shaq had 25/14, shooting 9 of 20.

In 12 career games against Shaq, Reeves had five double-doubles. For his career, Reeves had 74 double-doubles, so that’s a percentage of 18.7 percent of his career games. But against Shaq, Big Country had a double-double more than 40 percent of the time.

The career numbers of the Shaq vs. Big Country series, over 12 games:

O’Neal: 29.5 points, 12.1 rebounds, .575 shooting.

Reeves: 12.9 points, 9.2 rebounds, .452 shooting. {The Oklahoman} \
