K-State was led by preseason confer- ence MVP Jacob Pullen with 20 points who recently returned to the lineup after a suspension. Page and Penn combined for a perfect 15-of-15 from the charity stripe as the Cowboys hit 32-of-43 free throw opportunities. The Wildcats were 24-of- 31 from the stripe as both teams were whistled for a combined 57 personal fouls. That also resulted in four K-State players fouling out while Page and Darrell Williams fouled out for the Cowboys. The Cowboys won't return home until a Wednesday, Jan. 19, game with Iowa State. If OSU wants to squash any talks about not returning to the NCAA tournament, it will have to get off to a strong conference start and that includes getting some wins on the road. If the Cow- boys can at least split these first two road games, that will continue to build this team's confidence as the season progresses. The Cowboys ended their non-conference sched- ule with a 79-63 win over the University of Texas-San Antonio here last Monday, The Roadrunners are coached by former Cowboy great Brooks Thompson and saw OSU put the game away with a 20-4 run over a seven-minute span early in the second half. The Cowboys would outscored UTSA 34-19 Lathe final 16 minutes for the win. Come in for HomeWwn .Service ~ Friendly & Familiar Faces You Kno East Hwy. 33. Perkins
