Freshman guard Cade Cunningham enjoyed a successful collegiate debut, even if his own coach gave him a grade that might raise a few eyebrows. Cunningham aims to test better in the eyes of head coach Mike Boynton on Saturday when Oklahoma State (1-0) hosts Texas Southern (0-1) in Stillwater, Okla. With his parents and uncle in attendance, Cunningham collected 21 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in the Cowboys' 75-68 season-opening win over Texas-Arlington on Wednesday.
Oklahoma State will take its first step in a rebuilding campaign when it opens the 2020-21 season on the road at UT-Arlington on Wednesday afternoon in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The Cowboys were picked to finish seventh in the Big 12 Conference preseason poll. Oklahoma State was 18-14 overall and 7-11 in Big 12 play last season, finishing seventh in the 10-team conference.
When it came time for Tracey Bershers to choose a college, she admitted she preferred a place a little bit closer to home. The Fort Smith Northside standout did just that as the 6-foot-2 senior signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at Oklahoma State. Bershers privately signed her letter Wednesday, but she also had a celebration with family and friends Friday.
