Oklahoma State lowers men’s basketball ticket prices; Cowgirls golf on pace for NCAA bid
Welcome to the Wednesday edition of our Oklahoma State DieHards morning roundup, where we take you through the biggest headlines around Oklahoma State athletics.
Pokes lower ticket prices
Oklahoma State men’s basketball announced Monday it’s lowering ticket prices for the 2018-19 season. Yes, you read that correctly: lowering.
Following coach Mike Boynton’s debut season, the Cowboys are hoping they can attract bigger crowds for Year 2 of the Boynton era. Lowering prices in a few of its sections is a solid start.
Here is a look at what areas will be affected next season:
This is a positive move for Boynton’s program, which was controversially snubbed of an NCAA Tournament bid last season. The momentum still seems to be there for the Cowboys, who have a coach who’s completely bought into the program.
Now it’s up to the fans to follow suit.
Cowgirls close to advancing
Oklahoma State women’s golf is 18 holes away from a bid to the NCAA Championships. The Cowgirls are sixth in the team standings heading into the final day of their NCAA Regional in San Francisco.
Emma Broze (3-under-par through two rounds) and Kenzie Neisen (even par) are leading the way for the Cowgirls, who are looking to claim one of the 24 spots at the NCAA Championships taking place May 18-23 — in Stillwater.
The top six teams from each of the four regionals advance to the next round. Oklahoma State will tee off at noon ET on Wednesday.
