STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Despite returning to practice, Oklahoma State freshman Obi Muonelo was not in uniform for the Cowboys' game against Kansas State on Tuesday night.

Muonelo, who practiced for the first time since mid-December on Sunday, wore a black suit and sat at the end of Oklahoma State's bench.

The Cowboys (19-9, 5-8) won their first 11 games while Muonelo was healthy, but have gone 8-9 since he broke his left leg in practice in mid-December.

Cowboys coach Sean Sutton said he hoped Muonelo would be able to play Saturday at Baylor.

The loss of Muonelo was a blow to the Cowboys' depth. The former Edmond Santa Fe star scored in double figures in Oklahoma State's first 10 games. A 6-foot-5 guard, Muonelo was averaging 11.1 points a game when he got hurt.
