OSU basketball: Cowboys reportedly to face North Texas in Dallas

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State freshman star point guard Cade Cunningham will get a chance to play in front of his hometown fans.

The Cowboys will play North Texas in a neutral site game in Dallas on Friday, Nov. 13, according to CBS Sports.

OSU was reportedly set to play Louisville in the annual Armed Forces Classic that same day. But that game will be rescheduled, according to the report.

The Cowboys are scheduled to open the season Tuesday, Nov. 10, inside Gallagher-Iba Arena against Green Bay. That is the only game the university has announced for the upcoming season.

OSU is also reportedly scheduled to play Virginia Tech in a neutral-court game in Oklahoma City.

But those may not draw the attention a game in Dallas would for the Cowboys.

Cunningham is an Arlington, Texas, native. He attended Bowie High School for two years before playing the past two seasons at Florida’s Montverde Academy. He did play summer basketball in the Dallas area.

The Cowboys also have several other Dallas-Fort Worth connections on their roster.

Returning leader Isaac Likekele is also from Arlington, where he attended Timberview High. Incoming freshman Montreal Pena is also from Arlington. He attended Martin High.

Returning guard Chris Harris Jr. went to South Garland High in Dallas. And backup point guard Avery Anderson III is from nearby Justin, Texas.
