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

It’s high noon...

Oklahoma State to host pep rally:

Football season may not start for a few more months, but that doesn’t mean that the OSU Football team doesn’t have something to celebrate. Chuba Hubbard and Tylan Wallace are back for another year. To commemorate the occasion, they will host a pep rally in the Student Union on Tuesday at noon. Bill Haisten of the Tulsa World suggests they need to capitalize on this moment.

After Wallace and Hubbard announced that they would be Cowboys again in 2020, athletic department officials huddled to discuss ideas. The result was the Tuesday pep rally.

While the event is open to students and fans, most OSU people can’t be in Stillwater during a work day. I’m told that the pep rally won’t be available for live viewing. Someone in the athletic department should do whatever is necessary to use multiple cameras on a Facebook Live feed or a live stream on okstate.com.

If the goal is to maximize the moment, then anyone should be able to watch it as it happens. {Tulsa World }

This is reportedly an early push to sell 51,000 season tickets,

Cade Cunningham in Hoophall Classic:

Oklahoma State commit Cade Cunningham helped lead Monteverde to a win against IMG Academy. Rivals’ Eric Bossi wrote about Cunningham’s performance.

As usual, Montverde was led by Oklahoma State bound Cade Cunningham. The 6-foot-7 point guard didn’t have his best day ever shooting the ball. But he was outstanding on the glass, as a passer and as a defender. There’s so much to talk about with Cunningham’s excellence that as hard as it may be to believe, he is as good defensively as he is with any other part of the game. Pencil him in as the likely favorite for Big 12 Player of the Year and a potential first team All-American next year. He finished with 18 points, seven rebounds and four assists.{Rivals}

Let’s just say...Oklahoma State fans should be excited. I cannot wait to see him play in Gallagher-Iba. It still blows my mind that we landed him.

Chuba Hubbard gives first interview since his announcement:

Sirius XM caught up with Oklahoma State’s Chuba Hubbard at an event for the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

“There are a lot things that factor into it,” Hubbard said thoughtful in his answer. “One of the biggest is that I want to get my degree, so for me that’s big and my family that is also really big. I want to do that for myself and also them.”

We knew that was the case and had heard from a reliable source that despite the picture painted by other media outlets, both of Chuba’s parents were backing the decision in order for him to graduate which he is expected to do in December of this year.

There was more to the decision.

”I feel like I can up my game a lot,” Hubbard told Brandt, Marvez, and Sirius-XM NFL Radio. “I thought this year was pretty good, but I’m one that doesn’t get complacent and I feel I can be better. I’m going to work on bettering myself in certain aspects and hoping for a better season next year.” {Pokes Report}
