Date: Jan. 23

Location: Gallagher-Iba Arena, Stillwater, OK
Current Opponent Record: 16-7 (5-5 Big 12)
OK State’s victory over TCU was one of the most fun games to watch of the season so far for the Pokes. Neither team really gave way to show a clear victor until the end of the game. The Cowboys outscored the Frogs 57-47 in the second half, also making one of the highest-scoring halves of the season for either team.
Evans led the Cowboys in points with 27. Carroll managed one of his few double-doubles of the season with 19 points and 10 rebounds. Meanwhile, Evans also totaled eight assists, by far the most of any Cowboy during this game.
Outside of Evans and Carroll, not many other Cowboys had a great game. Forte only scored nine points and he struggled shooting from three as well.
Senior forward Mitchell Solomon had a really good game with eight points, four rebounds, and one assist.
The Frogs were a tough out, drawing twice as many turnovers from the Cowboys as the Cowboys were able to draw from them. However, it was the first home Big 12 win of the season for Underwood and the Pokes which helped spark the hot streak the Cowboys are currently riding.
