OSU Hoops: Gottlieb; Penn Update
By John Helsley
Came across a great tribute by Doug Gottlieb at espn.com. For OSU fans, it’s a must read.
Gottlieb, the former Cowboys point guard, puts not only faces, but spirit into each member of the basketball crew lost in the 2001 plane crash in Colorado in his touching tribute titled “The Ten will live in OSU hearts forever.”
Absolute must read, for Cowboys and non-Cowboys, anyone who remembers — or more poignantly may have forgotten — that heartbreaking period in Stillwater.
Proceed to the link — now.
And grab a hanky.

As OSU tries to shake a two-game losing streak, the return of point guard Ray Penn appears near.
And it can’t come soon enough.
While the Cowboys were able to disguise some weaknesses and win twice without their freshman point man, teams have begun to exploit Keiton Page and Fred Gulley.
Turnovers have skyrocketed and now the good gained from a road win at Kansas State could be surrendered if the Cowboys don’t start winning again quick.
Penn practiced a bit this week, although in a limited capacity. His status for Saturday’s game at Texas Tech is iffy, but with a full week between games before a Bedlam in Stillwater clash, the most he should miss is one more game.
