He scored a season high six points in his first game of the season, an 87-61 win against Manhattan Christian on Nov. 2 when he saw 18 minutes of action and made a pair of 3-pointers.

He also had three rebounds, one block and one assist.

Twice this season Osceola has scored five points in a game. He had two steals Nov. 26 in a 79-69 win against Randall when he played 17 minutes.

Osceola is a perfect 4-for-4 from the foul line.

Last season Osceola appeared in 11 games and averaged 1.3 points.

OCU returns to action Jan. 2 against Langston in Langston, Oklahoma.
