#5 Seed: The 04/05 OK State Cowboys were the most offensive-centric team in CBB over the 2002/11 digital decade.  Led by John Lucas, they were the BEST shooting team in all of CBB over the 2002/11 decade. Under legendary coach Eddie Sutton, these 04/05 Cowboys were as lame on defense as they were potent on offense.  They had Final Four potential, but picked the wrong year (March 2005 - a dominant dance) to peak. They were cruelly eliminated by a single point to 'Zona in dramatic fashion.  Zona's Salim Stoudamire's hit the Wildcats final possession shot, a dagger through the Cowboy's heart, resulting in OSU's Sweet 16 finale/exit.
