Oklahoma State has suspended freshman guard Marcus Watson after protective order was field against him last week by a female student. According to reports, Watson has a Nov. 7 court date in Payne County.

OSU released a statement on the situation:

“OSU is aware of the request for protective order and takes such matters seriously,” the statement said according to O’Colly. “Pending further investigation, the student-athlete currently is being withheld from team activities.”

Watson’s suspension is the sixth suspension or dismissal as the Cowboys head into the third year under Mike Boynton’s time at the helm.

OSU unofficially tips off the season Friday with an exhibition game against Rogers State. The Cowboys’ regular season opener is Wednesday, Nov. 6 against Oral Roberts in Stillwater.
