Oklahoma State Cowboys NCAA TOURNAMENT

March 16, 1995

Seed: No. 4.

Record: 23-9

Conference: Big Eight (10-4, second)

NCAA history: 21-12

Rank: No. 14

Highest rank: No. 14

Players to watch

Bryant Reeves

Position: Center

Height: 7-0

Weight: 292

Strengths: Big Country has worked to expand his repertoire of inside moves. He's one of the nation's premier low-post players (a 61.7 percent shooter from the field for his career) and a fierce rebounder.

Randy Rutherford

Position: Guard

Height: 6-3

Weight: 188

Strengths: The Big Eight's all-time three-point shooter, Rutherford has taken the bigger role the Cowboys needed of him this season. He's a versatile player who is most comfortable on the perimeter.

Coach's file

Eddie Sutton

Oklahoma State record: 119-44

Career record: 549-208

NCAA tournament record: 23-17

Highlights: Sutton is the only man to take four colleges to the NCAA tournament. This was the 17th season in the last 20 a Sutton-coached team finished first or second in its conference, and his fifth straight 20-win team at Oklahoma State. He celebrated his 59th birthday Sunday, when the Cowboys won the Big Eight tournament. His only Final Four appearance was in 1978, with Arkansas.

On playing Drexel: "I don't know much about them. It's not like playing someone you see on television all the time, and we can't get help from anyone in their conference. They've probably never seen anyone like that [Reeves], and I would think that's a big advantage for us."
