What Seed Did Oklahoma State Get In The 2014 NCAA Tournament?

Where: They will open play against Gonzaga in San Diego on Friday. 

Why: OSU finished the regular season with a 8-10 record in the Big 12. The Cowboys posted notable victories over Memphis, Kansas, Colorado, Texas and Kansas State. Oklahoma State was a popular early season Final Four pick, led by Player of the Year candidate Marcus Smart. The Cowboys put up a 12-1 non-conference record, but hit a major skid in the middle of the Big 12 season, when they lost seven straight games.

Ceiling: Oklahoma State has played much better basketball since Marcus Smart returned from his suspension stemming from an unfortunate incident with a fan at Texas Tech. The losing streak pushes Oklahoma State to a much lower seed than its talent might dictate. With players like Smart, Le'Bryan Nash, Phil Forte III and Markel Smart, this is a team that can chain some wins together this March.
