Oklahoma State finally got a win in a conference game. The Cowboys beat West Virginia 70-66 at home on Saturday to make them 1-6 in the conference. Oklahoma State is ranked second to last in offense in the Big 12 and has the No. 11 ranked defense.

After starting the season 8-5, the Cowboys had a six-game losing streak that shot them straight to the bottom of the Big 12 standings. At this point, Oklahoma State can play spoiler for other teams as their chances of making it to the NCAA Tournament are slim to none.

It will be interesting to see how the rest of Oklahoma State's games go because they have games closer lately. Can the Cowboys win a few games to make things even more interesting in the conference? Well, that is yet to be seen, but with their first win in the conference, the Cowboys get to move up a spot in these power rankings.
