High Noon Highlights (4/18): Oklahoma State Baseball Falls to Oral Roberts & More

Check out the Oklahoma State news that you may have missed!

It’s High Noon.

Tony Allen Visits Area 21

Kevin Garnett’s TNT show/segment/hangout/whatever, Area 21, is a beautiful blend of some NBA Greats spitting knowledge and shooting the shit. His latest episode featured Kenyon Martin, Alan Anderson, Andre Ingram and Oklahoma State legend, Tony Allen.

Allen is such a gem. There are a few more video’s you can check out on Twitter or you can watch full episode here.

Daniel Cormier Hired as Head Wrestling Coach at Gilroy High School in NorCal

“This opportunity is huge for me,” Cormier told “Wrestling has been the foundation for everything I’ve done. I’m excited to coach a great team in Gilroy and excited to give back to the town that has accepted me and my family so openly.”

Cormier said he will not earn any money from the high school. Instead, he’ll opt to give his stipend to his assistant coaches, which include MMA veteran Shawn Bunch, a two-time NCAA All-American at Edinboro University, and MMA prospect Kyle Crutchmer, a two-time NCAA All-American at Oklahoma State University.

What if I told you that Daniel Cormier, Kyle Crutchmer and I were in the same profession? No... I’m not a MMA fighter.

Don’t worry folks, DC isn’t hanging it up, he’s just picked himself up a regular day job. Gotta respect it. Looks like Coach Smith just gained a feeder school out in Northern California.

OSU Baseball Falls to Oral Roberts

Oklahoma State dropped its first meeting of the season against in-state foe Oral Roberts Tuesday night as the Cowboys suffered a 10-5 loss at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium. With the loss, the Cowboys fell to 20-14-1 and have lost four-straight meetings with ORU (21-14) dating back to last season. The two teams are scheduled to meet again on May 1 in Tulsa.

So, ORU is still upset at us for snagging Rob Walton, yeah?

Oklahoma State has two days off before entering into a three game series with Kansas on Friday at home. Kansas is 19-13 on the season, but they are currently riding a 3-game losing streak. Hopefully the Cowboys can bounce back after a tough loss and jump on the slumping Jayhawks.

BONUS: Mike Gundy has a side gig?
