STILLWATER, OK -- Byron Eaton scored 23 points and Marshall Moses added 14 points and 18 rebounds Saturday as Oklahoma State beat Baylor 84-74.

The Cowboys (17-9, 6-6 Big 12) also got 20 points from James Anderson.

Tweety Carter scored a season-high 30 points for Baylor (16-10, 4-8), and Kevin Rogers added 11 as the Bears lost for the seventh time in eight games.

A 4-point play by Carter with 7:19 remaining gave the Bears a 64-63 lead, but Oklahoma State outscored Baylor 20-11 the rest of the way.

The Cowboys' closing run was fueled by Eaton, who drained a 3-pointer and converted a lay-up in traffic.

Oklahoma State hit just 6-of-18 from 3-point range, but converted 28-of-33 free throws and outrebounded Baylor 39-30.

Baylor was 13-of-31 from 3-point range.
