STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Phil Forte scored a career-high 32 points and added four rebounds to help lead Oklahoma State to an 87-61 victory over the University of North Texas Wednesday night.

With star forward and leading scorer Le’Bryan Nash sitting out due to ‘disciplinary reasons,’ Forte stepped up, connecting on 8 of 13 shooting, including 5 of 9 from three-point range.

Michael Cobbins chipped in with 14 points and nine rebounds for OSU (7-0).

Jeremy Combs paced North Texas (4-3) with 15 points and five rebounds.

After Armani Flannigan’s layup put North Texas ahead 25-22 with 7:59 remaining in the opening half, Oklahoma State reeled off a 20-4 run to take control of the contest.

Forte scored 12 points, including a clutch three-pointer from the right side just before the shot clock expired, during that span to give the Cowboys a 42-29 lead with just 12.6 seconds left in the half.
