This is the July 1st OkState Sports Report.

Men’s Basketball

It’s July and it was a busy weekend for OSU sports so lets get right to it starting off in Greece.

OkState sophomore Isaac Likekele has made a big impact already for the USA U19 FIBA World Cup basketball team so far in the group stage. 

In the first game against New Zealand on Saturday, Ice had a game high five steals and tied for a game high with eight assists. He also scored 9 points. USA won that one 111-71.

In game two, it was all Big 12 all afternoon.

Likekele teamed up with Iowa State’s Tyrese Haliburton in dominating Lithuania yesterday 102-84.

Ice was efficient, shooting 5-of-6 for 11 points and Haliburton had a game high 21 points. USA was 12 points to the good with Likekele on the floor.

His averages through the first two games is at 10 points and more than four rebounds and assists per game.

Lithuania came into yesterday’s game as the No. 2 ranked team in the world.

Football

There was some big recruiting news this weekend, though it did not favor the Pokes in a fierce Bedlam recruiting battle.

Linebacker commit from Bishop McGuinness, Brynden Walker announced on his Twitter account he has flipped his commitment from Oklahoma State to Oklahoma. That leaves OSU’s linebacker commitments at two.

Baseball

This weekend there has been a reported shakeup in the OSU baseball program.

According to Kendall Rogers, a reporter for D1 Baseball, reported on Twitter than OSU assistant and recruiting coordinator James Vilade was leaving the program. That report surfaced last Thursday and according to Rogers the search did not take long.

He reported on Saturday that coach Josh Holliday has hired former Cowboy assistant and most recently Washington State head coach Marty Lees. Nothing has been officially announced by the University concerning these moves.

Golf

Finally in golf, a couple players from the 2018 National Championship team made some noise this weekend.

Viktor Hovland finished tops among any Cowboy in the field at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit. He shot a final-round 8-under to finish in a tie for 13th at 15-under.

Talor Gooch, Charles Howell III and Rickie also made the cut and played the weekend.

Over to the Korn Ferry Tour, where former Cowboy Kristoffer Ventura won in a playoff at the Utah Championship to earn his first tour victory in just five starts.

Here’s Ventura talking about what it’s like having so many Cowboys in professional golf…
