Graduate transfer Mike Cunningham is no longer a member of Oklahoma State’s basketball team, the program announced Tuesday.
Cunningham, a point guard, played in only seven games at OSU, scoring 56 points to go with 11 rebounds, eight assists and five steals. Cunningham transferred from USC-Upstate. He scored a season-high 15 points against Villanova in the AdvoCare Invitational and scored in double figures twice more as a Cowboy.
Cunningham missed the Cowboys’ first three games of the season with a hamstring injury and has sat out the past four for unspecified disciplinary reasons.
“Mike has decided that he wants to move on to the next phase of his life,” OSU coach Mike Boynton said in a release. “We wish him well and thank him for the contributions he made in his short time with the program.
“The standards of Cowboy basketball will never be lowered for a short-term gain. We are building on a foundation established by Mr. Henry Iba, Bryant “Big Country” Reeves, Desmond Mason and countless others who deserve to always be proud of the way we do things in Stillwater. This year’s team, though young, will continue to take pride in who they represent.”
