Oklahoma State rolls past No. 6 Kansas in regular-season finale

Oklahoma State rolls past No. 6 Kansas in regular-season finale”

If Oklahoma State could just figure out how to play the Big 12's less dominant teams the same way, they could cause some serious damage at the conference tournament next week.

OSU, which led by 18 during its five-point win at Allen Fieldhouse a month earlier, buried the Jayhawks (24-7, 13-5), putting the perennial league champ in its biggest hole of season, 23 points, before the game concluded.

Oklahoma State just did something no Big 12 team has ever done: sweep a Bill Self-coached Kansas team in the regular season.

It's the first time they will meet in the Big 12 tournament since 2015, when OU won 64-49 in a 3-versus-6 matchup. The blowout was reminiscent of the Cowboys' 86-67 win over KU on January 19, 2016, in Stillwater.

Oklahoma State (17-13, 7-10) is on the outside of most projected NCAA Tournament brackets, but can bolster its resume if it can complete a sweep of Kansas. No KU players appeared to get caught up in the mob on the court.

KU's worst loss in a Big 12 game in the Self era is by 25 points (80-55) at Texas in 2006. It was 76-53 at 3:58.

Senior big man Solomon couldn't miss early, making all five of his shots for a 14-point, five-rebound first half. Solomon and Smith had five points each in that run.

Oklahoma State added eight second-chance points off five offensive rebounds in the first 20 minutes.

The Cowboys held the Jayhawks to 41.7 percent shooting from the floor and blocked eight shots while forcing 17 turnovers.

Coach Bill Self's team will start Big 12 Tournament play against the victor of the Oklahoma-Oklahoma State in the second afternoon game Thursday at the Sprint Center.
