Oklahoma State basketball has put basketball activities on hold indefinitely due to a positive COVID-19 test within the program. Cowboys basketball announced the decision on Friday afternoon, one day before the team was set to play Oklahoma in Bedlam.
Mike Boynton said in part in his statement, “We will await the advice of our medical staff before making any decisions on a return to team activities.
Oklahoma State was playing some of its best basketball of the season leading up to this weekend, coming off a win over Kansas during the week.
Their game against West Virginia set for next week was already postponed due to COVID problems with the Mountaineers that were reported earlier in the week.
The Big 12 Conference did build a buffer period into its schedule from late February up until the Big 12 Tournament in the middle of March for any make up games to be played.
As of right now, the next possible game for the Cowboys seems to be next Saturday, when they are scheduled to take on the No. 2 Baylor Bears in Stillwater.
