Oklahomans will have to wait for Bedlam hoops.

Oklahoma State’s Saturday matchup against Oklahoma has been postponed. The postponement comes because of one positive COVID-19 test and contact tracing on OSU’s side, according to a source. The Oklahoman‘s Jacob Unruh had that information first.

OSU and the Big 12 confirmed the reports of the game’s postponement Friday afternoon. OSU announced it has suspended team activities indefinitely because of the positive test.

“The well-being of the young men in our program has always been and will continue to be the most important thing to me, my staff and our administration,” OSU coach Mike Boynton said in the release. “We’ve been very fortunate to play the games we’ve played thus far, and we will await the advice of our medical staff before making any decisions on a return to team activities.”

The Cowboys are coming off an upset win against No. 6 Kansas from Tuesday. OSU is 9-3 on the season and should debut in the AP Top 25 next week because of their win against the Jayhawks.

The Sooners are 7-4 this season. OU played a stretch of four games against top-15 teams. The Sooners went just 1-3 in that spree, but in their last outing, the Sooners thumped TCU 82-46.

OSU’s return trip to West Virginia was scheduled for Tuesday, but that game has already been postponed because of COVID issues with the Mountaineers.

The Pokes’ next scheduled game is against No. 2 Baylor on Jan. 23.

There is no rescheduled date for the Bedlam game or the Cowboys’ trip to Morgantown at this time.
