Oklahoma State men's basketball will honor the lives of the 10 men killed in the January 27, 2001, plane crash with its shooting shirts and jerseys on Saturday.

In the women's game, the victor will get sole possession of third place in the Big 12 standings.

The Sooners will have little margin for error in their next two outings: a rivalry matchup on the road with Oklahoma State on Saturday, followed by a showdown at Lloyd Noble Center on Tuesday with Big 12 leader and 13-time defending champion Kansas. Defensively, Oklahoma State yields 71.9 points against the opposing teams.

As Young emerged as college basketball's most unsafe player earlier this season with an array of slick passes, deft finishes and impossibly deep 3-pointers, his performance elevated Oklahoma from a lower-echelon Big 12 team previous year into the AP top 10. Every other Sooner combined to score 33 points on 14 of 43 shooting against Oklahoma State with only three assists.

Three players are averaging at least 11.3 points per game for Oklahoma, they are Trae Young (29.5), Christian James (12.1) and Brady Manek (11.3). Give me the points.

The Cowboys average 15.6 assists per game, which ranks 61st in the nation. Tavarius Shine, averaging 11.2 ppg, was the high scorer for OSU in the first Bedlam game with 16 points before fouling out.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys (12-6) are coming from a 76-60 loss to the Baylor Bears in which Cameron McGriff scored 16 points in 7 of 10 shooting from the field and 2 of 2 from the free throw line. That tells you that Oklahoma can not afford to be trailing OSU in the closing seconds of the game.

Cowboys point guard Kendall Smith stuck with Trae Young in the final seconds and forced an errant 3-pointer, sealing an 83-81, overtime victory for the Cowboys in front of a sold-out crowd in Gallagher-Iba Arena. The Sooners have not lost at home this season, but are 2-2 in true road games and 1-2 in Big 12 away games.

Game prediction: This will not be an easy game for Oklahoma, but no game is in the Big 12, especially this season.

The last time the Sooners played, they were blown out by the Kansas State Wildcats, 87-69.
