Bryce Williams dunked the victory out of Kansas’ hands!

Oklahoma State took on the Jayhawks just days after posting a victory against Kansas State. They were high on confidence and it was visible in the first half. The Jayhawks trailed by 11 points at half-time, but their second-half efforts were just not enough for the comeback.

Cade Cunningham and his men held Kansas from securing a late victory to improve their season record to 9-3. Once again, it was Cunningham who stood out in the points table with 18 to his name. 

Bryce Williams, who scored 17 points in the fixture, got his final two with a thundering dunk in the final seconds. As the clock wound up in the second half, Williams had possession with nobody there to guard him. 

Hence, the Florida native took his time, jogged up to the basket, and completed a notorious dunk to assert Oklahoma State’s dominance against Kansas. 

This marked Oklahoma State’s fifth victory in eight tries against Kansas at the Gallagher-Iba Arena. Moreover, the loss was also a big one to take for the Kansas Jayhawks who are falling behind conference leaders Baylor and Texas.

The Cowboys are ahead of the Sooners in their Big 12 conference, but that won’t play a huge part when the two teams meet at the Gallagher-Iba Arena. The honors were even at 1-1 in the 2019/20 season, but one can’t predict how the current set of fixtures would turn out. 

The Oklahoma State Cowboys have two games scheduled versus the Sooners in the regular season. After their game on the 16th, these two teams will once again meet on a Saturday (Feb 27) to close out their regular-season campaign.
