The Oklahoma State men's basketball team has re-entered both top 25 polls following its big win over No. 2 Kansas on Saturday. The Associated Press has the Cowboys ranked at No. 22 while the USA Today/ESPN poll has them at No. 24.

OSU has won three straight games and beat Iowa State 78-76 and Kansas 85-80 this past week to improve to 5-3 in conference play.
