OSU Bullets

• OSU fans have heard rumblings over the last couple of days on receiver Tylan Wallace’s health. While nothing has been announced, #sources close to the program have let information leak to reporters.

Despite rampant rumors and speculation throughout social media, the severity of Tylan Wallace’s knee injury was not known Thursday evening.

A source close to Wallace told The Oklahoman that the Oklahoma State receiver underwent an MRI exam Thursday, after suffering an injury at Wednesday evening’s practice. However, there was no conclusive evidence of the extent of the injury. [NewsOK]

Either way, it doesn’t sound like he’ll be available for the TCU game. But getting him back after the bye for KU (or the next week for WVU) would give him two and a half or three and a half weeks to recover.

• In a Big 12 basketball preview piece from last week, the ESPN analysts were high on OSU as the sleeper.

Give it up for Oklahoma State, everybody, returning more of its possession minutes from last season than any other Big 12 roster. This defense can do fine at forcing misses (Yor Anei will help there), assuming opponents just commit turnovers at an average rate. Lindy Waters III is a career 42% 3-point shooter. Plus the Cowboys already take pretty good care of the ball.  [ESPN]

Between Waters, Thomas Dziagwa, Jonathan Laurent, and Hidde Nowitzki-Roessink, this team could be one of the best shooting teams in college basketball. And that’s before you consider what Cam McGriff, Avery Anderson, and Chris Harris can do.

• Congrats to Cowgirl Soccer who locked up the Big 12 regular-season title with a win over the Lady Bears.

The No. 12th-ranked Oklahoma State women’s soccer team shut out Baylor 3-0 to claim their seventh Big 12 conference championship in program history Thursday at Neal Patterson Stadium.

OSU junior forward Gabriella Coleman and senior midfielder Julia Lenhardt each scored a goal in the first 10 minutes, and junior midfielder Camy Huddleston tacked on a goal in the second half. Junior goalkeeper Dani Greenlee posted a nine-save shutout for the Cowgirls, who improved to 14-1-3 and 7-1-1 in Big 12 play. [CRFF]
