Marcus Smart’s decision: making memories over making money.

At least for one more year.

Oklahoma State has called a press conference for 12:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Student Union in Stillwater where Smart will announce he’s returning for a sophomore season with the Cowboys, a source with knowledge of the situation told The Oklahoman.

The Big 12 Player of the Year and the national Freshman of the Year as the winner of the Wayman Tisdale Award, Smart’s return establishes OSU as a Big 12 favorite and a national contender.

Markel Brown and LeBryan Nash also are expected to announce they are returning next season.
