OSU Basketball to Face Marquette in 2020 Big 12/Big East Battle

Marquette went 18-12 last year and is losing its best player.



Oklahoma State will face Marquette in the Big 12/Big East Battle in 2020, giving the Cowboys another high-level opponent to bolster their non-conference schedule next season. The game will be played at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.

Date and tip times are scheduled to be released at a later date.

Marquette went 18-12 last season but faces a rebuilding year in 2020 after losing Markus Howard, who last season led the NCAA in scoring by averaging 27.8 points per game. The Golden Eagles also lose their second leading scorer, Sacar Anim, to graduation.

The OSU-Marquette pairing is one of the better ones in the battle, with Villanova-Texas, Baylor-Creighton and Kansas-Creighton shaping up as the marquee matchups. Baylor, Villanova, Kansas and Creighton will likely enter next season as preseason top-10 teams.

Oklahoma State and Marquette last faced off in 2007 at the Maui Invitational, where Marquette won — no, trounced — Oklahoma State in a 91-61 final. Outside of that outcome, OSU has won four of the last five in the series.
