STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Oklahoma State hosts Kansas State in the Cowboys' regular season home finale tonight.

The Cowboys are trying to snap a four-game losing streak and improve their chances for an NCAA Tournament bid.

OSU is now 19-and-9 on the season and 5-and-8 in Big 12 play while K-State is 20-and-9 and 9-and-5 in the conference in the Wildcats first year under coach Bob Huggins.

Tonight is also senior night at OSU and Mario Boggan and David Monds will be honored.

Tip-off is at 8:05 at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

And there is some good news for the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Obi is back at practice.

Freshman Obi Muonelo returned to practice Monday more than two months after fracturing his leg in mid-December.

Coach Sean Sutton says it's doubtful Muonelo will play in tonight's game against Kansas State but could be ready to play by Saturday at Baylor.

Muonelo was averaging more than 11 points per game and was the Cowboys' top reserve when he was injured.
