Report: Cowboys returned to Brooklyn to play at Virginia Tech

Mike Boynton’s hometown of Brooklyn has become a second home for the Cowboys in recent years, and they will return in 2022.

Oklahoma State will face Virginia Tech on December 11 at Barclay Center as part of the Hall of Fame Invitational, according to Jeff Goodman. The Cowboys are 3-1 in Brooklyn since Boynton took over.

Opponent Results Season
Texas A&M L, 72-55 2017-18
pitt W, 73-67 2017-18
Syracuse W, 86-72 2019-20
Ole Miss W, 78-37 2019-20

Here’s the rest of the event, according to Goodman:

Maryland vs. Tennessee
Iona vs. St. Bonaventure
UMass v Hofstra

OSU’s game is sure to be full of intrigue. It’s in Boynton’s hometown, and he’ll be playing against a mentor in Mike White. White served as Wofford’s head coach from 2002 to 2019. Boynton was an assistant under White during the 2007-08 season, where Boynton won the associate head coaching title.

Former Edmond Memorial star Sean Pedulla also plays for the Hokies. At one point, Pedulla received an offer from Oklahoma State before ending up in Blacksburg, Virginia. He played in 36 games for the Hokies last season where he averaged 5.4 points and 1.3 assists per game while shooting 45 percent from 3.

Virginia Tech went 23-13 last season and 11-9 in ACC play before winning the ACC Tournament, beating North Carolina and Duke in Brooklyn to do so. The Hokies fell to Texas in the first round of the NCAA Tournament 81-73.

This looks like another exciting non-conference list for the Pokes. OSU will play UConn in the Big East-Big 12 battle, and the Cowboys will also seek revenge on Oakland after the Grizzlies upset the Pokes last season. This match would be scheduled for November 13.
