A Cunningham NBA Draft Profile:

Welcome to Loud City (SB Nation site for the Oklahoma City Thunder) wrote a wonderful scouting report on former Oklahoma State stand-out Cade Cunningham. A LOT of Thunder fans want Cade. But so do a lot of teams.

For the season, Cunningham averaged 20/6/3 with 1.6 steals per game on a true-shooting percentage of 57.4%. The real value of his numbers can be identified in the advanced stats. Cunningham had a +8.3 BPM which effectively means that Oklahoma State was 8.3 points better with Cade on the floor than the average production from another player. His one season in Stillwater indicates that he has the ability to win games all by himself.

Cunningham’s playmaking is arguably his greatest skill; he is a patient and considered passer who plays at his own pace and knows how to walk his teammates into baskets. His considered, selective play is most noticeable whenever he runs pick and roll as the ball-handler. {Welcome to Loud City}

Avyonne Jones Decommits from Oklahoma State:

Defensive Back Avyonne Jones announced this morning that he is reopening up his commitment.

“After further consideration and multiple conversations with my family, I’ve decided to de-commit from Oklahoma State University,” Jones said on Twitter. “I’d like to thank the university and the staff for the opportunity, but I’ve decided to move a different direction.”

Game times announced for Super-Regional:

Softball will have one more hurdle to climb before they make it to Oklahoma City. Texas will be coming to Stillwater.

The series will be Friday start Friday the 28th at 4 p.m. CST, with a game on Saturday at 3 p.m. CST.

The Cowgirls easily rolled through the Stillwater Regional this past weekend as they run-ruled Campbell 10-0 in five innings, beat Mississippi State 9-3 in game two and then run-ruled them in game three in five innings, 10-2. The Cowgirls combined for 36 hits on the weekend, seven of which were home runs, while giving up just 12 hits. One of those homers for OSU was a history-making blast as Sydney Pennington hit her 36th career home run, breaking the previous record of 35 held by Tiffany Mikkelson. {Pokes Report}
