Oklahoma State basketball: Cowboys' rematch with Baylor postponed

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State’s second shot at Baylor is going to have to wait.

The Cowboys’ scheduled game Saturday at the second-ranked Bears was postponed with no make-up date announced, the Big 12 announced Tuesday afternoon.

No reason was provided by the conference, though Baylor has not played since Feb. 2 due to COVID-19 protocols. In that span, Baylor has had six games postponed.

OSU lost the first matchup 81-66, but was without superstar Cade Cunningham (COVID-19 protocols) and Rondel Walker (arm).

The Cowboys’ schedule has been impacted multiple times this season.

Their January Bedlam matchup was postponed after their own COVID-19 issues. That has since been moved twice, landing on Monday, March 1, in Stillwater. 

The Cowboys’ game at West Virginia was also postponed due to the Mountaineers’ COVID-19 protocols. That game has not yet been rescheduled.

OSU hosts Iowa State at 3 p.m. Tuesday. The Cowboys’ next game is Monday inside Gallagher-Iba Arena against Texas Tech at 8 p.m.
