Oklahoma State freshman backup point guard Stevie Clark was reportedly arrested for possession of marijuana on Jan. 1.

Clark was averaging 7.0 points and 3.7 assists as star Marcus Smart’s understudy for the No. six Cowboys (12-1).

Clark, who was booked into the Edmund, Okla., jail, is free after posting bail.

Edmund police public information specialist Jennifer Monroe said Clark was arrested at 9:57 a.m. CT, and was the passenger in a vehicle pulled over for a seatbelt violation. Clark and the driver were both arrested for possession of marijuana.

Oklahoma State didn’t immediately issue a statement.

This is Clark’s second marijuana related issue since stepping on Oklahoma State’s campus as his earlier four-game suspension was drug related, a source told ESPN.com.

The arrest comes one day after the Cowboys lost starting center Michael Cobbins for the season with a torn Achilles.

Cobbins, a 6-8 junior, was injured in the first three minutes of Oklahoma State’s 92-66 victory over Robert Morris on Dec. 30. He has started each of the Cowboys 13 games and averaged 4.5 points , 4.3 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 19.5 minutes of action.

"Our thoughts are with Michael, and we pray for a successful recovery," coach Travis Ford said in a statement. "We know Michael will work extremely hard and be back next season, better than ever!"

6-8 sophomore Kamari Murphy will likely move into the starting lineup when the Cowboys travel to Kansas State (10-3) on Jan. 4.
