Welcome to the Monday edition of our Oklahoma State DieHards morning roundup, where we take you through the biggest headlines around Oklahoma State athletics.

Oklahoma State loses heartbreaker to Texas

Jeffrey Carroll scored 19 points and Lindy Waters had 14, but Oklahoma State (16-13, 6-10 Big 12) couldn’t prevent a last-second basket from Texas (17-12, 7-9) on Saturday. The Cowboys, who have been a superb road team in Big 12 play, fell 65-64 in Austin, Texas, despite a solid second-half performance.

“I was proud of my guys to continue to fight out on the road, which we have done pretty much all year,” Cowboys coach Mike Boynton said following the game. “We’ve had some success, and tonight was pretty resembling of how we played against them in Stillwater, it was almost the exact same score except that it was flipped, and they won.”

Up next, Oklahoma State is at Ames, Iowa, for a date with the Iowa State Cyclones at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday. The game will be televised on ESPNU.

Baseball sweeps Marist

Cowboys baseball (4-1) won 3-2 on Sunday and 5-3 on Saturday to sweep a shortened series with Marist (0-5). The nonconference series was shortened because of rain. The Cowboys took advantage of their two opportunities against Marist, however, picking up wins from Jonathan Heasley and Ben Leeper. Jon Littell and Matt Kroon hit home runs for the Cowboys over the weekend.

Up next, Oklahoma State faces Little Rock on Tuesday and Wednesday. Both games are set for 5 p.m. ET starts in Stillwater, Okla.
