Which is worse, a rout or a close one?


Remember how Oklahoma was haunted by their butt-kicking last month at the hands of Oklahoma State? Well now they’ll be haunted by their achingly close loss, 71-69. That’s an upset for #25 OSU over #20 OU, and a regular-season sweep for the Cowgirls.

I’ve always said I’d rather get routed than nipped by 2 points or less.

What do you think?

#24 Michigan State also downed their rivals Michigan, 85-64.

Fordham stunned George Washington, 76-69.

Central Michigan squeaked by Eastern Michigan, 66-65.
