Jeffrey Carroll unselected in NBA draft; golf adds All-America honors
Welcome to the Friday edition of our Oklahoma State DieHards morning roundup, where we take you through the biggest headlines around Oklahoma State athletics.
Jeffrey Carroll unselected in 2018 NBA Draft
Jeffrey Carroll’s name was never called at the 2018 NBA Draft. Two rounds and 60 picks passed by the former Oklahoma State guard on Thursday. Carroll, who was projected as a fringe second-round pick, will now look to the NBA’s Summer League to compete for a training camp spot.
Carroll averaged 16.4 points and 6.4 rebounds as a starter his last two seasons in Stillwater, Okla. He worked out for nearly a dozen teams in the pre-draft process. The 6-foot-6, 205-pound guard from Rowlett, Texas, will have to take a different route to the NBA than some of his Big 12 peers.
The pressure will be on Carroll to make a good impression at Summer League if a team decides to sign him to a short-term deal. The 2018 Summer League begins in Utah and Sacramento from July 2-5. The Las Vegas circuit begins July 6.
Cowboys golf adds 3 All-America honors
Oklahoma State men’s golfers Zach Bauchou, Kristoffer Ventura and Austin Eckroat etched their names in Cowboys lore as All-Americans on Thursday.
Bauchou earned second-team honors, while Ventura and Eckroat earned honorable mentions.
The Golf Coaches Association of America previously named Oklahoma State sophomore Viktor Hovland and freshman Matthew Wolff first-team All-Americans.
The Cowboys, who won the 2018 NCAA championship, increased their All-America total to 181 honorees.
