OSU, Wichita State To Play Basketball Series

Oklahoma State will play Wichita State in home-and-home basketball series, beginning with the upcoming 2016-17 season in Wichita.

New Oklahoma State men's basketball coach Brad Underwood thinks playing against the best competition will benefit his team. On Monday, it was announced that OSU and Wichita State have agreed to a two-game home-and-home series.

The Shockers will host the Cowboys this next season (Dec. 17, 2016) at Intrust Arena, with Wichita State making the trip to Gallagher-Iba Arena on Dec. 9, 2017.

"Greg Marshall has done a tremendous job of elevating the Wichita State program to the national spotlight, and we're excited to start this series," said Underwood. "To play such a quality opponent in a first-class arena just two hours down the road will not only help the development of our program on the court, but will give our fans the opportunity to cheer us on in person."

OSU has won four of the last five meetings against the Shockers, although the two programs haven't played since a 68-58 Cowboy win in Wichita on Dec. 21, 2002. Overall, the Cowboys lead the series, 29-8, including a 14-5 mark in Wichita. OSU is 15-2 against WSU in Stillwater.
