The Sooner State dominated last weekend's NCAA championships, with Oklahoma State finishing first and Oklahoma third. Together those two schools won 32 of the first 38 NCAA team titles, but before the weekend neither had won a championship since the Cowboys did so in 1994. Conversely, the traditional powers from Iowa turned in their most dismal performances in years. The Hawkeyes' eighth-place finish was their lowest since 1972, and Iowa State's 19th-place showing was the Cyclones' worst since the Kennedy Administration. Herewith, a two-state score sheet.
