OSU men's basketball notebook: Philip Jurick's injury could linger

Cowboys center Philip Jurick, OSU's leading rebounder at 5.8 per game, didn't play Saturday and could miss significant time after suffering a sprained left foot late in the Cowboys' Friday practice.

Jurick traveled with the team and was on crutches, moving slowly.

“The X-rays, they said, were fine,” said Cowboys coach Travis Ford. “He's not moving very good, I can tell you that. He's not moving very good at all. I don't foresee him being back anytime soon. That's my doctor evaluation.”

With a quicker than usual turnaround facing OSU, which travels Monday for a Tuesday game at Texas Tech, Jurick is doubtful for that game, if not more.

“We've got to prepare as if he's not going to be with us for a little bit,” Ford said. “That's the way you've got to look at it.”

If the Cowboys are going to snap their lengthy conference road losing streak — now at 14 games, dating back to Feb. 17, 2010, at Iowa State — Tuesday might offer the best opportunity.

Texas Tech is 0-8 in the Big 12 after losing 63-50 Saturday at Missouri.
