After a one-year absence, the Oklahoma State Cowboys are dancing in the NCAA Tournament.
It's their fourth invite in the past five seasons and 28th time overall to take part in March Madness. And while their most recent runs have resulted in one and done, the Cowboys do have two national titles under their belt.
The No. 10 Pokes tip off against the No. 7 Michigan Wolverines Friday at 11:15 a.m. OSU will be looking for its first tournament win since beating Tennessee, 77-75, in 2009.
What are OSU's chances of beating Michigan? According to ESPN, 10 seeds have beaten 7 seeds just 39 percent of the time. But, the last three years have produced close games with nine of 12 matchups being decided by eight points or less. OSU is a two-point underdog.
The Cowboys and Wolverines met once before in the NCAA Tournament. Michigan won the Sweet Sixteen matchup, 75-72, in 1992.
