STILLWATER, OK -- Oklahoma State scored a season-high 66 first-half points and went on to rout Northwestern State, 122-73, on Saturday.

James Anderson, who finished with 27 points, led four Cowboys with at least 20 points. Terrel Harris, Obi Muonelo and Keiton Page scored 23, 22 and 21, respectively.

Muonelo also grabbed 12 rebounds, collecting his seventh double-double of the season.

Nick Sidorakis also reached double figures with 11 points and OSU (10-3) tied a school-record for 3-point field goals made (15) and turned in the fifth-best point total in school history.

The Cowboys's improved to 152-2 at home in non-conference games since 1987. 1 of those losses was to Northwestern State in December of 2005.

The 10th meeting between the programs was over early in the second half as the hosts took an 80-39 lead with 14:54 to play in the game. Charles Clark's bucket with 14:30 left accounted for the first points of the second half for the Demons (8-7).
