High Noon Highlights (5/7): Cowboy Baseball closes in on a Big 12 Title

Welcome to high noon highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed yesterday in Oklahoma State Athletics

It’s High Noon...

Cowboy Baseball drops series against Iowa

After winning game one of the series in Iowa City, the Cowboys dropped a barnburner on Saturday 16-14, and then also dropped the rubber game on Sunday 11-3. Despite losing the series, there were a few bright spots during the series. Michael Neustifter went 4-5 with 6 RBI’s on Saturday. The Cowboys were able to launch quite a few home runs in the series, firing up the Gap Band six times during the 3-game set. The Cowboys will look to rebound this week with a weekend series against Baylor.

Cowboy Baseball maintains its lead in the Big 12

Despite a 1-3 week for Oklahoma State, they still maintain their lead in the conference. The Cowboys have a 3 game lead on Texas in the conference standings currently, and with Texas Tech and Texas off next weekend, the Cowboys can win the conference outright against Baylor with a sweep.

Cowboy Football still in on Marcus Hicks

Marcus Hicks is a 5-star defensive end from Wichita, Kansas. Plenty of teams would like him to take his talents to their respective schools, but it’s looking like the top three schools as of now are Oklahoma, Michigan, and Oklahoma State. As of now, the 24/7 crystal ball predictions have Hicks going to Oklahoma, but plenty can change between now and the time he decides to make his commitment.

Tre Flowers in Seahawks rookie minicamp

As you can see from the title of the video, Flowers will be making a position change as he takes his place in the Legion of Boom. He’ll be moving from playing safety to cornerback. This may seem like an odd transition since he was so successful as a safety in college, but Flowers fits the mold of the tall, physical corner that the Seahawks have found success with in recent years.
