A little basketball buzz

The lack of interest was probably a combination of things — the football team being so much fun to talk about, disappointment on the basketball court the last couple of years, etc. But Oklahoma State’s dismantling of Tulsa took a lot of people (including Travis Ford) by surprise. The Cowboys made a Sportscenter highlight (appropriately Byron-to-Thomas, the play that worked so well all evening), the OSU message boards are buzzing about basketball and I’ve even received a couple hoops emails today.

In postgame Ford mentioned that he doesn’t know how good the Cowboys are yet. I — and I bet a lot of you fans — are looking forward to finding out next week in Orlando.  Anyway, let’s hear it. What are your thoughts on OSU hoops? Have they changed this week?
