Big 12 Game Of The Year?

If you did not stay up last night to watch all 3 hours of the Oklahoma State / Texas game you missed one of the most entertaining big 12 games we have seen in a LONG time.

The Cowboys and Longhorns played a triple-overtime thriller in Stillwater last night with OSU coming out on top 105-103 when Mario Boggan drained an improbable three pointer with 3.2 seconds left.

Kevin Durant and Mario Boggan, probably the two best all-around players in the league, were both trying to will their teams to victory last night and both guys put up mind-boggling numbers in what was a battle for the ages.

Durant had 37 points and 12 rebounds (playing 52 minutes) while Boggan had 37 points and 20 rebounds (playing 54 minutes).

You can read a recap of the game here:

(The ESPN recap also has a highlight reel embedded in the article.)

Texas travels to Villanova on Saturday while OSU next travels to College Station to take on the Aggies on Saturday night at 7:00.

We will have a full preview of the OSU game ready to go by tomorrow afternoon.

Carry on.

Let's hope Billy will work on the press break offense before the t.u. game b/c OSU press break in the OT's bordered on a junior high level of competence.

Side note, read yesterday that Billy plans to have a deeper bench so not to wear players out. Hope this is true b/c my only concern is how the 7 man rotation was going to leave the inside players with very little experience for that 'special' road game where AK and Jones get in early foul trouble.
