Editor's Note: Insider has teamed with Blue Ribbon College Basketball Yearbook, long known as the Bible of college basketball, to provide a comprehensive look at all 327 Division I teams.

Oklahoma State's 68-56 loss to eventual national champion Syracuse in the second round of the NCAA Tournament was a microcosm of its final 14 games.

The Cowboys, who began the season 17-1, blew a 17-point first-half lead to the Orangemen and ended up losing by double digits.
