The game was ugly at times, no doubt about it. Gonzaga committed 15 turnovers, to just 8 for Oklahoma State. There were questionable calls and noticeable no calls, but Gonzaga still pulled out a 69-68 win over Oklahoma State, our 5th opponent from the Big 12.
With this win, we ended 2012 on a high note. We finished non-conference play with 13 wins and just 1 loss.
