BIG 12 MEN'S BB: Cardiac Cowboys clip Baylor in OT

(Continued)

STILLWATER — With OSU struggling to score the first half, shooting 30 percent from the field and 0 for 9 from 3-point range, the Cowboys got a big boost off the bench from freshman forward Kamari Murphy and redshirt sophomore Brian Williams, who was playing in his third game back since a wrist injury before the season. In 31 minutes of work, Murphy scored eight points and had four rebounds — three of which were on the offensive glass. Williams played just 8 minutes but contributed six points — all in the first half.

The Pokes, who had struggled rebounding earlier in the season, were able to pull out the win thanks to the post play. Though Baylor finished with two more rebounds than OSU, the Cowboys held a five-rebound advantage on the offensive glass and held Baylor’s top two offensive rebounders (Isaiah Austin and Rico Gathers) to 1 combined.

“Baylor came in as the No. 1 offensive rebounding team in the league and Austin is the No. 1 offensive rebounder in the league and Gathers was No. 2, so we held the top two offensive rebounders to 1 offensive rebound and between the two they were averaging almost 8 per game,” Ford said. “That was the No. 1 point of emphasis on the board before the game and over the last two days.”

Oklahoma State will take its four-game winning streak to the road for a two-game trip to the state of Texas. OSU will travel to Austin, Texas, to face the University of Texas on Saturday before traveling to Lubbock, Texas, to take on Texas Tech on Wednesday.
