Thanksgiving Day in the Big 12 featured only two games on the schedule. One team ended up thankful for getting a tough hard fought win while another team lost their first game of the season.
Oklahoma State gained a victory 60-56 over their toughest competition so far, the DePaul Blue Demons. The Cowboys were led by senior Marshall Moses who led all scorers with 27 points while fellow senior Keiton Page added 11 points. Page also played virtually the entire game with 39 minutes of official game action. The game was deadlocked at 27 at halftime and Oklahoma State trailed by 2 points with under four minutes left in the game but were able to overcome and keep their record perfect on the young season. An area that coach Travis Ford will want to correct is the fact that the Cowboys committed 25 turnovers in the game.
Texas A&M also had a tough game that came down to the end but unfortunately they came out on the wrong end with a 67-65 loss to the Boston College Eagles. The loss is the Aggies first of the year but it didn't come easy for the Eagles as Dash Harris layup at the end of regulation rolled off that would have sent the game to overtime. Khris Middleton led the Aggies with 19 points while David Loubeau added 15 points and 6 rebounds.
