(STILLWATER, Oklahoma / June 5, 2018) – Mike Boynton and the Oklahoma State basketball team have scheduled a home-and-home series with the University of Houston that will bring the Cougars to Gallagher-Iba Arena on Dec. 8, 2018 with a return to Houston’s new Fertitta Center in 2019-20.
The Cougars are coming off a 27-win season that included a thrilling NCAA Tournament victory over San Diego State. Led by former Oklahoma head coach Kelvin Sampson, Houston notched impressive wins over Wake Forest, Arkansas, Wichita State, SMU and Cincinnati in 2017-18. They finished the year at No. 20 in the RPI.

Under the guidance of Boynton, OSU recorded a school-record four wins over top-10 opponent and tied the school record with 15 home wins in 2017-18. Overall, the Cowboys won 21 games and advanced to the third round of the NIT.
