A Game To Forget!

The University of Kansas may have honored Eddie Sutton for his legendary coaching career at halftime, but the Jayhawks sure weren't very hospitable to the rest of the Cowboys on Wednesday night. The sixth-ranked Jayhawks never trailed and played one of their best games of the season en route to a 87-57 victory over the ninth-ranked Cowboys at Allen Fieldhouse.

The Cowboys, now 15-2, didn't give themselves much of a chance against the Jayhawks. They turned the ball over three times in the first two minutes of the game and fell behind 5-0 before even getting on the scoreboard. The Jayhawks went on a 19-3 run – a stretch of nearly nine minutes in which OSU turned the ball over 10 times and its only points came via three free throws – to go up 33-11 with eight minutes left in the first half, and it was all but over.

"It was one of our most embarrassing losses – ever!" Cowboy head coach Sean Sutton said.

OSU's Mario Boggan and JamesOn Curry entered the game averaging 21.9 points and 18.9 points, respectively. But they combined for just 20 points (nearly 21 below their averages) and shot a dreadful 7 of 24 from the field in the loss.

Boggan had the worst game of his two-year career at OSU. He scored just eight points (breaking a 24-game streak in which he had scored in double figures) on just 4-of-16 shooting (the second worst shooting percentage of his two-year career), and finished with five turnovers and no rebounds.

Curry and Kenny Cooper tied for team-high scoring honors with 12 points, but the Cowboy junior made only three of eight shots. Terrel Harris also finished in double figures with 10 points, while Boggan and David Monds added eight apiece.

OSU shot a dreadful 32 percent from the field, their worst outing of the season.

KU honored Eddie Sutton at halftime by presenting him with a rocking chair, and the Jayhawk fans gave him a standing ovation.

The Cowboys will look to get back in the win column when they travel to Lincoln, Neb., to face the Cornhuskers, who lost to Iowa State 71-62 on Wednesday night in Ames, Iowa, to fall to 11-4 on the season.
