Basketball misc.

Phil Forte’s free throws at the end of the Texas game weren’t the first big ones he’s needed in that gym in his career. (NewsOK)

Interesting: Oklahoma State improved to 15-14 in games decided by three points or less under Travis Ford. (Tulsa World)

I’m shocked at this headline (not really). (okstate)

Jeff Van Gundy is calling the OSU-Kansas game tomorrow? (NewsOK)

If OSU beats Kansas to go with the victory over Texas, might the Cowboys be in? The victory in Austin gave OSU the breathing room it lost in Bedlam. Berry also doesn’t think Mitch Solomon would “take a shot under threat of a bayonet.” (NewsOK)

Wow, somebody is picking OU to go to the Final Four? (Yahoo)

OSU now has some bulletin board material to go with the defense of its Big 12 title. No first place votes, eh? (Big 12 Sports)

Bryan Case would trade places with Tom Brady. Get in line.

Why recruiting rankings don’t always matter as much as you think. I would argue that this class was an outlier. (Tulsa World)

I was going to do this but didn’t get around to it. Chris Ross looked at where OSU’s class landed in the rankings at all four major services. Consensus was mid-30s. (CRFF)

Based on rankings OSU only put one player on the Big 12 all-recruiting team. (ESPN)

Oh and the all-name team is way more fun. (Fox SW)
