STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton has handled the constant change around him by being steady and consistent.
Last season, the Cowboys were picked to finish last in the 10-team Big 12 after coach Brad Underwood left for Illinois. And before Boynton coached his first game, the school fired assistant Lamont Evans, who was named in a federal bribery investigation.
Through it all, the Cowboys went 21-15 and reached the NIT quarterfinals. The Cowboys beat six ranked teams, including Oklahoma and Kansas twice. Boynton was rewarded with a two-year contract extension through the 2023-24 season.
