It’s high noon...

Jim Littell gets his 800th career win:

In Cowgirl Basketballs ‘ 70-63 win against Kansas State in Manhattan last night, something special happened for their head coach. He got his 800th career victory. The Cowgirl basketball family sent congrats in to form this awesome video.

“It’s been an honor to be able to say over the years that I got to play for you,” Kim Ortega said. “

Oklahoma State looking into car dealership post from Chuba Hubbard:

Right before Chuba Hubbard announced on Monday he would be returning to Oklahoma State a picture appeared on his Instagram story that could cause issues appeared. Hubbard posed with a car at a dealership in Canada. the dealership also had a post. Both were deleted.

The comments to go with the picture said Hubbard “had the opportunity to drive the Genesis G90 executive sedan during his stay in Edmonton and he loved it.” Oklahoma State informed the Tulsa World the compliance team is aware of the social media post and is checking into the details.

For Boynton, the rough start to Big 12 play is numbing:

Bill Haisten wrote about last night’s loss to Texas and what emotions Boynton has to be feeling right now.

As an ambassador and promoter of Oklahoma State, he is a champion. As the man responsible for the bottom line, however, he’s not getting winning results.

At the 2½-season mark of Boynton’s time as the OSU head coach, he is 42-42 overall and 13-27 in the Big 12.

How is it possible for a team to seem so good during Thanksgiving week, then to be so bad by Christmas and even worse in January?

If you’re an Oklahoma State basketball fan, you shudder to think how this team might look by Valentine’s Day.

If you’re one of the 7,403 fans who attended this Big 12 game at Gallagher-Iba Arena, you saw the latest chapter of a story that gets more dismal by the day.

Final score: Texas 76, OSU 64. As they converted on dunk after dunk, and outscored OSU 45-18 on 3-point baskets, the Longhorns appeared to be more comfortable on Eddie Sutton Court than did the Cowboys. {Tulsa World}
