Player Gives Up Scholarship to Help Team: Nick Sidorakis, the captain of Oklahoma State's basketball team, has voluntarily given up his full-ride scholarship so that another player won't have to be cut. The senior will play as a walk-on this season at his own expense. The team recruited four new players and all qualified, putting them one over the scholarship limit. "[H]e's showing his leadership," said Coach Travis Ford. "And this is just another way. And unexpected. He's the ultimate team guy."
