OSU Hoops Announces Nonconference Schedule

Take a look at the Cowboys’ 2019-20 noncon opponents.



The Oklahoma State basketball captains got to play the role of Woj on Thursday morning.

Cameron McGriff, Thomas Dziagwa and Lindy Waters all tweeted out the Cowboys’ 2019-20 nonconference schedule. Here it is:

Opponent Date
vs. ORU Nov. 6
vs. UMKC Nov. 9
at Charleston Nov. 13
vs. Yale Nov. 17
vs. Western Michigan Nov. 22
vs. Syracuse (Brooklyn) Nov. 27
vs. Ole Miss or Penn State (Brooklyn) Nov. 29
vs. Georgetown Dec. 4
vs. Wichita State Dec. 8
at Houston Dec. 14
vs. Minnesota (Tulsa) Dec. 21
vs. Southeastern Louisiana Dec. 29

After seemingly being on the road for much of last season’s noncon, OSU will play seven of the games inside Gallagher-Iba Arena. Two games will be in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, and the Cowboys’ Dec. 21 matchup against Minnesota will be in Tulsa at the BOK Center. That leaves only two true road games: at Charleston Nov. 13 and at Houston Dec. 14.

The nonconference schedule includes five squads that were in the 2019 NCAA Tournament, seven 20-win teams and eight teams that finished in the Top 100 in KenPom’s rankings last season.

An exciting addition to the schedule is the Georgetown on Dec. 4 in Gallagher-Iba. The Cowboys have played Georgetown only once before, a 97-70 OSU victory in the 2016 Maui Invitational.

Reigning Ivy League champs Yale will be in GIA Nov. 17. The Bulldogs finished 22-8 last season, falling to LSU in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

The Cowboys will play Oral Roberts for only the second time this decade. The teams last met in 2018, where OSU crushed ORU 91-48, but before that, the teams hadn’t played since 2007, an Oral Roberts victory.
