STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -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.
