Road Woes

Oklahoma State opened the second half by making 10 of its first 12 shots from the field, and erased a 10-point halftime deficit to take the lead in Wednesday night's Bedlam game against Oklahoma. But the 17th-ranked Cowboys struggled the final 12 minutes and lost another road game – their fourth this season – to the rival Sooners 67-60 at Lloyd Noble Center in Norman.

The Cowboys appeared to be ready to break the road losing streak when JamesOn Curry's steal and slam dunk gave them a 44-41 lead with 12:06 remaining. But the Sooners went on a 13-4 run over the next five minutes, and they never trailed again.

OSU saw its record fall to 18-5 overall and 4-4 in Big 12 action after losing its second consecutive game. The Cowboys enter the final eight games of the season on a slide, and will be looking to get back in the win column when they host Texas Tech on Saturday at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

The Cowboys probably would have won the game if they had made their free throws. OSU was just 5-of-14 from the free-throw line, and were just 3-of-9 from the charity stripe in the second half. Oklahoma was 16-of-19 at the free-throw line.

Mario Boggan led the Cowboys with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Curry was the only other Cowboy to score in double figures with 17 points.
