Oklahoma State’s NCAA Tournament hopes are alive and well with a 72-65 win over 5th ranked Kansas.
It took a team effort by the Pokes. Markel Brown, Le’Bryan Nash, and Marcus Smart all finished in double figures for OSU.
Kansas held a one point halftime lead, and in the 2nd half, enhanced their lead to 10.
OSU never quit. After a tough 1-8 start for Smart, he scored 15 of the Cowboys final 23 points.
Four Jayhawks finished in double figures on a night they were to celebrate. Iowa State and Texas both lost meaning the Big 12 regular season crown was theirs outright.
When the buzzer hit 0, fans rushed the court and celebrated with the Cowboys.
Next up, OSU hosts Kansas State on Monday for senior night, then hits the road for their final regular season game against Iowa State in Ames.
