This marks the 13th time the Cowboys and Mavericks have met on the hardwood, and OSU brings an 11-1 series record into Tuesday night’s game.
UTA’s one win against the Pokes came during the 1987-88 season. For what it’s worth, the OSU finished that season 14-16.
The teams first met in the 1981-82 season, where OSU beat the Mavericks 63-55 in Arlington. Stillwater hosted its first game of the series the following year, a 90-83 victory for the Cowboys.
These teams started the year against each other last season, as well. The game was tighter than anticipated, but Cade Cunningham had a 21-point, 10-rebound double-double to lead OSU to a 75-68 victory.
