STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State freshman Obi Muonelo is hoping to be back on the court Saturday when the Cowboys play at Baylor.

Muonelo has missed the past 18 games after breaking his leg in practice in mid-December. OSU was 11-and-0 at the time and has gone 9-and-9 without him.

Muonelo says he's hungry to play and is tired of sitting and watching.

He was cleared by doctors to play in Tuesday's game against Kansas State but says the leg was still shaky and he didn't feel good about playing.

The Cowboys will be without leading scorer Mario Boggan who is suspended for the Baylor game after head-butting Kansas State's Cartier Martin in the closing minute of Tuesday's game.

And Sutton says second-leading scorer JamesOn Curry has an ear infection but is expected to play against Baylor.
