STILLWATER — Oklahoma State’s game against TCU on Wednesday night wasn’t so much anticipated for the matchup, as it was as the checkpoint in advancing the calendar.

And once the No. 9-ranked Cowboys finished off an 82-50 rout of the Horned Frogs, the focus fast-forwarded to what’s next: a Saturday showdown at No. 15 Kansas, in Allen Fieldhouse, where OSU flipped its season a year ago with a stunning upset of the No. 2 Jayhawks.

“It’s going to be exciting,” said Le’Bryan Nash, one of four Cowboys in double figures scoring against TCU. “Knowing we’re coming off a win from last year, they’re going to have their crowd rocking. And we’ll come in there with the same attitude we had last year.

“It’s going to be a good game and atmosphere. They’re coming off a good win at Iowa State, so I know they’re pumped.”

Before all that, the Cowboys had to take care of TCU, yet to record a road win as a member of the Big 12 and winless in the conference to start this season. And OSU went about it immediately, building a big early lead on the way to a 39-25 halftime edge that only expanded over the final 20 minutes.

“They are a good team,” said Horned Frogs freshman guard Michael Williams. “They are up there with the best.”

OSU improved to 15-2 overall and 3-1 in the Big 12.

The Horned Frogs fell to 9-7 and 0-4.
