B2 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, January 26, 2012 S 'Cats get physical with Pokes, 66 Even though I didn't attend Saturday's Big 12 Conference basketball game between Oklahoma State and Kansas State, I got the impression it was a very physical game that seemed to benefit the visit- ing Wildcats. I'm a firm believer that if basketball officials are going to "let 'em play" as many fans like to bark during the course of a game, then let them. But if fouls are going to be called, at least make them consis- tent. That didn't appear to be the case while listening to the radio broadcast and listening to my son/staff photographer Kyle' s descriptions. And it's not just lim- ited to Saturday's game either. There are times when watching college basketball games on tele- vision, the flow seems to be scripted based on how the games are being called. And some of those times it appears the calls are favor- ing the ranked teams, as was the apparent case at Gallagher-Iba Arena The No. 25 Wildcatsheld off a late O-State charge to gain a 66-58 win. This is not saying the officiating cost the Cow- boys at a chance to win. Poor shooting, especially from behind the three- point arc, had a lot to do with that. The Cowboys were 1-of- 16 from behind the arc and Pawnee senior 7th girls sweep games The seventh grade Lady Demons gained a pair of home victories last week. P-T's week ended with a 16-13 win over Chandler last Thursday. It started with a thrilling 26-23 overtime triumph over Stroud last Tuesday. Against Chandler, both teams battled to a 7-7 halftime tie. The Lady Demons used a 4-0 third quarter advantage to lead 11-7. Chandler would nar- rowly outscore P-T 6-5 in the fourth quarter but the Lady Demons held on for the win. Tierra Vigil led P-T in scoring with 10 points. Against Stroud, P-T would outscore the visitors 4-1 in the extra period for the win. Stroud led 11-6 at half- time but the Lady Demons rebounded in the third quarter for a 16-13 advan- tage. Stroud outscored P-T 9-6 in the fourth quarter for a 22-22 tie at the end of, regulation. Charity Surine led P-T in scoring with 8 points. P-T 16, Chandler 13 CJH 4 3 9, 6-13 P-T 4 3 4 5-16 Tierra vigil 10, Charity Surine 4, Kallie Jones 2.

And that three-pointer kept a string of games alive with at least one. The streak now sits at 372 con- secutive games. Saturday's frigid three-point shooting was also the lowest percent- age (6.3 percent) inside Gallagher-Iba Arena for OSU since the three-point line was instituted, with a minimum of 10 attempts. The previous low was in last year's Bedlam game with Oklahoma when the Cowboys hit 1-of-14 for 7.1 percent. What kept the Cowboys in contention was the abil- ity to hit free throws. OSU was 25-of-29 from the char- ity stripe for a very good 86 percent. Kansas State, on the other hand, managed only 23-of-40 free throws for 57.5 percent. You've still got to give the out-manned Cowboys a lot of credit for sticking with things in spite of the adversity this team has experienced this season. Not only are the eight schol- arship players getting loads of playing time with some in different positions than they normally play, head coach Travis Ford has even called up his two walk-ons for some court time. I don't see it as a desperation move, but as a way for the others to get some much-needed rest. And besides, they wouldn't be in uniform if they didn't have any basketball skills anyway. The Wildcats had ample opportunities to put the Cowboys away on several instances, especially with the way the game was being officiated, But OSU refused to give up, especially with the nice crowd that was in attendance. Ford even noted that in his post-game com- ments. "Our kids mentioned how much they appreciate the fans coming out. They didn't think there would be many people, and they really appreciated the fans," Ford said. "Our kids were devastated they lost the game because of the fans. They said that." Official attendance was listed at 10,338 according to the final statistics. Page led in scoring with 17 points, which moved him to 14 tb on the all-time scoring list..

A three- point bank shot buzzer beater lifted the Cyclones to a 71-68 win. With the score tied at 68, the Cowboys had a chance for the final shot but the ball was knocked off Markel Brown's leg and roll out of bounds with 4.8 seconds left. Iowa State used the time to quickly get the ball up the floor before the winning shot was made. We wonder if he called the shot. tallied 21 points each for the Cowboys. With this team strug- gling, it seems more are baling off that proverbial "band wagon." This group ' shouldn't be remembered for many wins or how many losses it has, but for how these guys have stuck together. I still think Ford is a good coach and should continue for many years to come. 3, Makayla Albers 2, Dalylah Myron 2. then outscored the Demons 8-5 in the second half.
