OSU basketball notebook: Loss to Missouri one to forget for Cowboys

Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford typically doesn't agree with the theory that some games are better forgotten, but he'll make an exception for this one.

“Give Missouri the credit. They got after us defensively better than any team has gotten after us this year with their pressure on the perimeter. And they were really making shots. Our defense wasn't great, but give Missouri credit.”

Give credit and forget it.

“Different from a lot of other games where you want to talk about it and remember it,” Ford said. “Forget it and move on. We've got to get our team some rest, some serious rest.”


With the win over OSU, Missouri's seniors recorded win No. 101 for their career — a school record.

Mizzou Arena has been a great ally in that record run, with the Tigers seniors good for a 66-3 mark at home during that stretch. And this season, Mizzou is 15-0 at home.


The Cowboys are back inside Gallagher-Iba Arena on Saturday for a second meeting with Texas.

One of the hottest teams in the Big 12, the Longhorns have won four straight, including two on the road — at A&M and Oklahoma.

Texas, after a 3-6 start to conference play, is now 7-6 in the league and 17-9 overall.
