Hoops Preview: Cowboys Host Baylor After Quick Road Turnaround

The Cowboys play host to the Bears on Monday night.

STILLWATER — After a big win in Morgantown, the Cowboys had to travel about 1,000 miles back to Stillwater and get right back to work.

Oklahoma State hosts Baylor on Monday, which also happens to be the spring semester’s first day of classes. With students back and the Cowboys’ form on an upswing, Gallagher-Iba Arena should be a bit more rambunctious that it was during the winter break, something OSU coach Mike Boynton readied his team for in the locker room following Saturday’s victory.

Here is a preview of the Cowboys’ Monday night matchup.

Boynton on the Quick Turnaround

“It’s hard. All last year, I was trying to figure out how to get a routine throughout this stuff, and I think this year, I’ve really just thrown all that out the window. I’ll try to win a game on Saturday, and when I wake up Sunday, I’ll see how I think my team feels, and we’ll approach practice depending on how that is at that moment.”
