Stillwater, Okla. -- Oklahoma State's Cowboy Basketball team will open the Big 12 portion of its schedule Wednesday night as the Texas Tech Red Raiders visit Gallagher-Iba Arena for a 7 p.m. game. The contest will not be televised.
OSU finished the non-league slate with a 7-6 mark against the toughest non-conference schedule in the Big 12. The Cowboys' strength of schedule up to this point is ranked 34th nationally, far higher than the second-best in the league, Kansas' 91st-ranked schedule. Four of OSU's six losses came at the hands of teams currently receiving votes in the national polls, and the six losses have come to teams that have a combined record of 65-17 at this point in the season.
Oklahoma State is led by senior guard Keiton Page who is averaging 13.8 points per game after back-to-back 20-point performances. He scored 27 points in a double-overtime win against SMU in Dallas, and followed that up with 21 points in a loss to Virginia Tech on Saturday.
The Cowboys are 10-5 in league openers since the Big 12 formed in 1996-97, and 12-3 in conference home openers. In fact, Wednesday's game will mark the seventh-straight season that OSU has opened league play inside Gallagher-Iba Arena. It also marks the sxith time since the formation of the Big 12 that OSU has played Texas Tech in the conference opener, including four at home.
