STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Oklahoma State baskeball coach Sean Sutton says during the Cowboys' media day that he learned many lessons from the Cowboys' late-season collapse last season.

Sean Sutton says that he could have done a better job coaching the Cowboys, who finished 22-13 after a 15-1 start. He says he got soft and that he's promised this season's OSU players that they will see the real Sutton this year.

He says that it's important for the Cowboys to once again be tough mentally and physically.

At times last season, OSU barely had enough players to field a team because of injuries and defections. Sutton says he's addressed most of those depth issues with a seven-man recruiting class that features McDonald's All-America selection James Anderson.
