STILLWATER -- Former and should be Hall of Fame basketball coach Eddie Sutton used the say the greatest motivator in basketball, in sports, is the bench. "Those guys don't want to be sitting over there by me," said the Cowboy legend. Saturday against second-ranked Baylor, Mike Boynton tried it out starting freshmen Kalib Boone at the post over Yor Anei and Avery Anderson over senior Thomas Dziagwa.
