It’s high noon....

Men’s basketball adds to staff:

Yesterday the Oklahoma State men’s basketball announced some changes to their staff. This included some assistant coaches. David Cason and Larry Blunt are the latest additions to the Mike Boynton staff. With Erik Pastrana leaving for Florida and Scott Sutton moving to an admin role these spots were open.

Cason, a 25-year collegiate coaching veteran with stops at Texas, North Carolina, Notre Dame, VCU and Tulsa, spent the last three seasons as the associate head coach at FIU. He has been a part of more than 400 victories over his career, and Cason’s teams have advanced to the postseason 12 times, including four NCAA Tournament trips and seven NIT appearances.

“Coach Blunt is an outstanding addition to our staff,” Boynton said. “His experience as an assistant at both Canisius and Drake, in addition to his experience running his own program, give me great confidence that he is ready to help us on our journey to build a champion in Stillwater. LB has recruited, developed, and coached some elite talent in his time coaching and has the ‘Let’s Work’ mentality as he comes in the door. I’m excited to welcome him and Morgan to the Cowboy basketball family.{}

Football announces home and home with Alabama:]

It’s gonna take a few years but in 2028, Oklahoma State will host Alabama in Boone Pickens with OSU traveling to Tuscaloosa in 2029. While it may be hard to get excited about something that’s not happening for seven years, the prospect of a top program like Bama making its way to Stillwater is awesome.

Softball opened up doors for Carrie Eberle:

Following the WCWS the NCAA is doing a fabulous series where they give players the opportunity to thank their sports. For Oklahoma State’s Carrie Eberle, it showed her what she wanted to do with the rest if her life.

“You have been a constant in my life for so many years and have helped shape me into the woman I am today.”
