Oklahoma State captain Nick Sidorakis gives up scholarship to make room for others

Oklahoma State captain Nick Sidorakis has agreed to give up his scholarship so that the Cowboys don't have to cut a player from the basketball team.

OSU spokesman Mike Noteware confirmed Tuesday that Sidorakis agreed to play his senior season as a walk-on and pay for school on his own. Otherwise, the Cowboys would've been over the limit on scholarships.

Sidorakis is a senior point guard who averaged 2.5 points last season in 24 games off the bench.
