Oklahoma State will begin conference play this week after learning that junior guard Jean-Paul Olukemi has seen his last action this year.

Olukemi suffered a torn ACL and will miss the rest of the season, Cowboys head coach Travis Ford announced Monday.

Olukemi suffered the injury early in the second half of OSU's 67-61 loss to Virginia Tech and had to be helped off the court. He had scored eight points when the injury occurred.

The LaHabra, California native was averaging 9-point-4 points per game this season for the 7-and-6 Cowboys.
