B2 - THE JOURNAL, Thursday, March 12, 2015 Sports Round 3 of Bedlam starts conference tourney The Oklahoma State Cowboys split their final two games of the regular season and ended up with a No.6 seed in the Big 12 Conference Tournament that began yesterday in Kansas City. The Pokes will face Bedlam rival Okla- homa at 8 o'clock tonight. This will be the fourth time the Cowboys and Sooners have faced each other in the conference tournament with OSU win- ning the previous meetings. In two of those games, the Pokes were the lower seed. The first meeting was in 1999 when OSU won 60-57. In 2009, O-State slipped past OU 71-70. In 2010, the Pokes coasted to an 81-67 win. The winner will face either Iowa State, Texas or Texas Tech at 8 p.m. Friday. The Longhorns and Red Raiders faced off in a first round matchup Wednesday night with the winner play- ing the Cyclones today. The Pokes lost at West Virginia last Saturday to end the regular season. The Mountaineers gained the season sweep with an 81-72 win in Morgantown. Despite the loss, the Cowboys had one of their better shooting games hit- ting 54 percent of their shots. However, they were outscored from the free throw line 23-9 which proved to be the difference. West Virginia erased an early 3-00SU lead and never trailed. Jeff Newberry drained a three-point shot to begin the game for the Pokes' lone lead. Newberry finished with a career-high 23 points. Anthony Hickey fol- lowed with 17 points while Phil Forte added 13. Le'Bryan Nash chipped in 10 points to keep his string of double-digit scoring intact for the season. The Cowboys closed out the home portion of the season with an 82-70 win over TCU last Wednes- day night in Gallagher-Iba Arena. It took a while for the Pokes to get going but after trailing 25-20 late in the first half, O-State went on a 32-8 run that finished the first half and continued into the early minutes of the second half. The Cowboys led by as many as 52-33 with just under 15 minutes left in the game. TCU pulled to within 12 at 72-60 at the 5:32 mark but a 5-0 run cushioned the lead and the Homed Frogs never threatened. Nash and Anthony, both playing their final games at GIA, finished with 20 points each. Five Pokes earned All-Big 12 honors it was announced last weekend. Nash earned a spot on the all-conference second team while Forte was named to the third team. Hickey and Michael Cobbins were All-Defensive selections and Hickey was a member of the All-Newcomer team. CN CN CN The Cowgirls split the two games they played in the women's confer- ence tournament in Dallas, Texas, last weekend. The season ended with a 69-52 loss to Baylor in semifinals action last Sunday. The Cowgirls opened the tour- nament with a 67-58 win over Iowa State. Now at 20-11, the Cow- girls must wait to see if they will be given a spot in the NCAA Tournament. We believe they are deserv- ing of a spot and could do quite well depending on the bracket placing. But if that doesn't happen, a NIT berth would mean more home games possibly. LaShawn Jones gave the Cowgirls their only lead with the first bucket of the game. Then Baylor took over. The Lady Bears led 40-21 at halftime. Jones opened the second half with a conventiOnal three-point play to create a 40-24 score. But that would be as close as OSU would get. Baylor led by as many as 31 points with 11:38 left in the game before the starters were pulled from the game. Roshonda Johnson led the Cowgirls with 16 points, Brittany Martin followed with 13 points and 11 rebounds while Jones scored 11. O-State also placed three players in double figures in the opening round win over Iowa State. Johnson led with 20 points while Martin fol- lowed with 17. Liz Dono- hoe chipped in 14. The Cyclones pulled to within three at 59-56 with less than two minutes left. However, the Cowgirls used the free throw line as an ally by hitting 4-of-6 attempts to hold on for the win. The regular season wrapped up last Monday night with a 66-56 loss to Oklahoma on Senior Night. The Cowgirls struggled offensively despite the 23-point effort by Donohoe who played her final game at GIA. Johnson added 14 points. Three Cowgirls earned All-Big 12 honors it was announced at the end of the regular season. Martin was a unanimous choice for the first team. She was also named to the All-Defensive team. Dono- hoe and Jones were on the honorable mention list for all-conference. Oklahoma State senior Liz Donohoe shoots for two of her game-high 23 points in last Monday's 66-56 Bedlam loss to Oklahoma. Donohoe was one of two seniors recognized before the game as this was their last game to be played at Gallagher-lba Arena, The Cowgirls lost in the semifinals of the Big 12 Conference tournament and must now wait to see if they will be included in the field for the NCAA Worn- en's Tournament. Donohoe was a four-year starter for the Cowgirls, Journal photo by Kyle Lomenick "Now That's A Pizza Coupon!" Present This Coupon For $2.00 OFF ANY LARGE PIZZA One coupon per customer per visit.
