A protective order filed against Marcus Watson, a freshman on the Oklahoma State men's basketball team, will remain in effect due to a motion for continuance filed on Wednesday. 

The protective order against Watson was previously filed and granted on Oct. 21.

The woman who filed the order alleged that Watson raped her at his apartment on Oct. 20, according to the petition for protective order.

The woman who accused Watson of rape has already hired an attorney.

Watson was originally supposed to be in the Payne County Courthouse on Thursday. However, the counsel of the woman who filed the protective order against Watson was unable to appear in court because of a prior hearing. 

Neither Watson nor the woman who filed the protective order was in court on Thursday.

The motion of continuance was granted and Watson's court date was moved to Nov. 26.

Watson, as of now, is still suspended on OSU's men's basketball team.
