BOULDER, Colo. (AP) _ John Lucas scored 26 points and Jameson Curry had 17 of his 22 in the second half to lead ninth-ranked Oklahoma State to a 104-to-86 victory over Colorado.
Oklahoma State rebounded from a 67-to-57 defeat to 13th-ranked Oklahoma last week with its highest scoring game of the season. It was OSU's first win in Boulder, Colorado, since February 24th, 1996.
The Buffaloes made 11 of their school-record 17 3-pointers in the first half and trailed 52-to-50. Richard Roby went 4-for-4 from behind the arc in the first half.
But Oklahoma State made some defensive switches, including putting the faster Curry on Roby instead of Daniel Bobik, and started making shots.
Ivan McFarlin added 17 points for the Cowboys, while Joey Graham, who leads the Big 12 in scoring, had 14.
