WACO, Texas -- The Oklahoma State Cowboys lost a tough game in overtime against Oklahoma and needed to rebound quickly as they travelled to Waco to take on the No. 24 Baylor Bears.
But for the second game in a row, the Cowboys’ offense fizzled late and OSU fell to the Bears 83-68.
Former Edmond Santa Fe star Obi Muonelo started the game strong, going 6-of-9 from the field and 4-of-4 from 3-point range for 16 points in the first half, but couldn’t keep that pace in the closing 15 minutes, ending the game with 21.
James Anderson did his best to help OSU, scoring 18 points and grabbing a team-leading seven rebounds, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the high-powered Baylor offense.
Oklahoma State shot well early, going 48.4 percent from the field and 54.5 percent from 3-point range in the first half, but only made nine shots from the floor and two from behind the arc in the closing 15 minutes of the game.
For Baylor it was all about LaceDarius Dunn, who led all players with 25 points on a 9-of-17 shooting performance. He also knocked down four 3-point shots and grabbed nine boards on the way to guiding the bears to victory.
Oklahoma State will be back in action Jan. 20 at home against Colorado.
