Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics.

It’s high noon...

An update on Duncan Demuth’s injury:

After playing for 46 seconds in Wednesday game against TCU, Coach Boynton says the Duncan Demuth’s injury is more psychological that physical at this point.

He told the Oklahoman:

“I think he’s better,” Boynton said. “I think it may be a little more psychological now than truly physical, but we’ll continue to monitor him. Obviously, I’m always gonna be mindful of — I can’t tell the kid how he feels, so I don’t wanna try to do that. I do want him to understand there’s a difference between being injured and having to need medical attention, and being sore or having some aches and pains, which is a part of the process through the college basketball season.”

Cowgirl Basketball gets a Bedlam win:

Last night the Cowgirls got a win against rival Oklahoma. A win in the Bedlam Rivalry is always something to celebrate. Joseph Fazio of the O’Colly wrote about how Jalen Hobbs was able to help her team get the win.

Late in the game, a clutch pair of three-pointers from Hobbs helped the Cowgirls (13-8, 4-6 Big-12) stall the Sooners’ comeback, winning 84-74 on Wednesday.

The Sooners (5-16, 1-9 Big-12) quickly looked to end its three-game losing streak against the Cowgirls, scoring eight points in the first three minutes of the game.

Coach Jim Littell called a timeout to gather and compose his players.

“We switched offenses and opened up the floor and made that adjustment,” Littell said. “We just gotta get better to start games and to start second halves.”

Coming out of the timeout, Hobbs and the Cowgirls got into their own groove. {The O’Colly}

The win pushes OSU’s record against their in-state rival to 9-8 since 2010. Not too shabby ladies!

Oklahoma State Baseball Commit focused on college ball:

Westmoore pitcher (and OSU commit) Kale Davis isn’t having thoughts of the Big Leagues just yet. Tyler Palmateer of the Norman Transcript writes that for Davis, this is a step in his journey.

“I think it’s the first step of a long journey,” Davis said after a signing ceremony before a packed gym. “You go through your whole career to make it to high school baseball, then make it to a college team. Today was kind of that next chapter in my life. Hopefully in two years I can go pro.”

Davis was 8-0 and maintained a 2.14 ERA as a junior for Westmoore last spring. He struck out 90 batters in 52 1/3 innings as the Jaguars reached the Class 6A state finals.

Trace Ford Bumped to 4-Star

One note from earlier this week, Oklahoma State signee Trace Ford, the class of 2019 defensive end from Edmond, saw his stock rise.

While his composite remains a 3-star, 247Sports bumped Ford up to a 4-star in their rankings.

Here’s what 247Sports’ Barton Simmons had to say about Ford in their updated rankings.

“Ford was a guy we loved all the way back in the spring as an edge rusher at The Opening Dallas regional. He tested well, put together good film and as a three-sport athlete that’s just getting started in his physical development, we believe he can be an elite edge rusher in the Big 12.”

We already considered Ford “someone to watch” this upcoming season. This only confirms it.

That’s all for today. Have a fantastic afternoon!
