Oklahoma State basketball: Stevie Clark returns from suspension

by Gina Mizell Published: December 6, 2013

Cowboy freshman guard Stevie Clark returned Friday night from his suspension for undisclosed reasons, tallying a late pull-up 3-pointer to go along with one rebound and two assists in 12 minutes. He nearly pulled up for another trey in the final seconds, but stopped himself and chuckled as the clock ran out.   

Clark was sent home from OSU’s most recent road trip to Florida, missing the Cowboys’ game at South Florida, plus their three contests in the Old Spice Classic.

“Got back, talked and went through a few things and I thought he was ready to go,” Cowboy coach Travis Ford said. “I thought he responded well. He’s just been off for a week, so he was still a little rusty.”  

Entering Friday, Clark was averaging 9.8 points per game as a valuable reserve option and Marcus Smart’s backup at point guard.


With a winter storm ripping through this part of the country Thursday and Friday, five-star center Myles Turner of Euless (Texas) Trinity had to cancel a planned visit to Stillwater.

“Highly dissapointed I couldn't make it out to my official visit to Ok State this weekend weather did not hold up at all rescheduling soon!” Turner posted on his Twitter account Friday.

Turner, who is rated the No. 6 recruit in the nation by Rivals, is also considering Arizona, Duke, Kansas, Ohio State and Texas.


Weather, however, did not prevent one of OSU’s best athletes of all-time from making an appearance Friday.

Former Cowboy baseball star and current Chicago White Sox manager Robin Ventura was in the house and got a standing ovation from the crowd when introduced and shown on the jumbotron.
