Houston Cougars Men's Basketball to Face Oklahoma State in Fort Worth
POSTED: August 19, 2021 -- 3:08 p.m. CT
The Houston Cougars Men's Basketball program will meet the Oklahoma State Cowboys on December 18 inside Dickies Arena in Fort Worth, Texas, as part of the Hoop Hype XL | College Basketball Showcase.
This will be the third time in the last four years in which the Cougars will face the Cowboys. Houston claimed a 63-53 win in Gallagher-Iba Arena on December 8, 2018, before Oklahoma State took a 61-55 win inside the Fertitta Center on December 15, 2019.
It also will be the first meeting against Oklahoma State at a neutral site since the Cowboys enjoyed a 75-60 win during the NCAA Tournament Midwest Regional in Manhattan, Kansas, on March 12, 1965.

About Hoop Hype XL | College Basketball Showcase
The charitable component for Hoop Hype XL | College Basketball Showcase will be a community campaign called the [a3] Initiative. The [a3] Initiative, in connection with U-Sports Group and the Hoop Hype XL basketball platform, will strive to blur the lines between sport and service, inspiring the participating student-athletes to use their gifts to empower and improve the lives of those who are less-fortunate.
"Hoop Hype XL will provide college basketball programs with a true alternative to traditional neutral-site events," U-Sports Group President Rhossi Carron says. "Our event platforms were designed for elite college teams to compete on a national stage and to help their student-athletes develop their passion for giving back in a genuine way. The idea of blending sport and service is at the heart of U-Sports Group and will be reflected throughout our collection of sporting events. We are very excited about the opportunity to utilize the Hoop Hype XL basketball platform to impact the lives of children in the DFW Metroplex."
