January 17 is OSU basketball coach, Mike Boynton's, 40th birthday.
His team helped him celebrate a couple of days early with the January 15 upset of then number one, Baylor in Waco.
One of the signature plays in the 61-54 win was the hustle, shown by Rondel Walker.
It was that type of effort in the 3rd game in five days that made the difference.
Bryce Thompson's 19 points, including the final six of the game, helped seal the deal.
