Oklahoma State
1998-99 record
23-11 overall, 10-6 Big 12 (lost to Auburn in NCAA second round)
Eddie Sutton, 202-88 (nine years), 632-252 overall (29 years)
Projected starting lineup
G Doug Gottlieb, 6-1 Sr.
Superb playmaker who led nation in assists (8.8), but an awful shooter (31 percent from the floor, 44 percent from foul line).

G Glendon Alexander, 6-5 Sr.
The 39-percent 3-point shooter found his niche in the offense late in the season.

F Desmond Mason, 6-6 Sr.
One of the conference's marquee players, averaged 27 ppg. in two NCAA Tournament contests.

F Alex Webber, 6-10 Sr.
Known more for his fouling than his play, but the rock 'em sock 'em post played well down the stretch.

F Brian Montonati, 6-9 Sr.
Voted team's Most Improved Player last year, he averaged almost seven points a game in 18 minutes of play per game.

Top guy off the bench
G Joe Adkins, 6-2 Sr.
Started 27 games last year and might start again in three-guard lineup.
Key Newcomer
F Andre Williams, 6-9, Kansas City
Team's only signee last fall, attended prep school in Maine, averaging 15.1 points and 12.7 rebounds a game.
Key Games
Six of first seven conference games will be against teams expected to finish in the bottom third of the league, so a quick start is important. The other game is at home against league co-favorite Texas (Jan. 19).
Lost premier scorer in Adrian Peterson, but he is the only starter and letterman not returning. Mason will be hard to defend, especially if he is able to stay on the outside. That will depend on Webber, Motonati and Williams' play inside. This will be a very good team, and the conference title is not out of the question.
