The Big 12’s long win streak was snapped on Sunday.  However, only three teams in the conference have suffered multiple losses on the very young season.

Oklahoma State toppled Middle Tennessee State on Tuesday in Stillwater before their face-off with No. 17 Maryland on Sunday.  In a televised game at home, the Terrapins were favored by most experts, and as I published last week, even myself.  For a while the Cowboys held a lead but that started to slip away.  While Maryland held a lead of 17 at one point, Oklahoma State got the lead down to 4 before having to foul to stop the clock.  Oklahoma State lost 73-64 and get to enjoy a week off.

In this year’s MGM Grand Showcase, No. 15 Oklahoma fell to No. 16 Washington 69-67 and in this year’s Gotham Classic in New York, West Virginia topped NC State 83-69.  TCU stayed undefeated with a win over UTSA on Saturday and finally cracked the top 25 this week.  Kansas State improved to 7-4 with a 71-64 win over Texas A&M in the annual Wildcat Classic in Kansas City.  Kansas, Texas, Texas Tech and Iowa State all won this week as well.
