Fast forward to now, and OSU (14-13, 4-10) has won four conference games, including an impressive 83-66 home Bedlam win against Oklahoma. The Cowboys knocking off No. 1 KU on the road would be a different beast, however. Regardless, I’m excited to watch this team grow, especially young players like Kalib Boone, who seems to have finally found his college basketball sea-legs.

Nearly a month ago, KU suffocated OSU’s offense with stellar defense and poor outside shooting from the Pokes (2-for-18 from from 3-point range). Christian Braun replaced Isaiah Moss in the Jayhawks’ starting lineup and torched the Pokes from deep while leading KU in scoring with 16 points. Superstar and potential lottery pick Devon Dotson was somewhat limited in this low scoring game and finished with 11.
For the Cowboys, Cam McGriff led all scorers with 18 points while grabbing eight boards. Boone also got the start, and managed 8 rebounds of his own but scored just 4 points. Isaac Likekele was the only other Poke to managed double-digit scoring at 10.
KU enters Monday’s contest on a high after defeating No. 1 Baylor 64-61 in Waco. BU had won 23 straight games and held the No. 1 ranking for five weeks. Can the Cowboys catch KU on an emotional hangover after their big win?
Who leads the Cowboys in scoring tonight?
