STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Phil Forte scored 19 points to help Oklahoma State defeat Texas A&M-Corpus-Christi 92-70 on Thursday afternoon.
Forte, who had been in a shooting slump, made 5 of 10 3-pointers for the Cowboys. Jeffrey Carroll scored 13 points, Lindy Waters had 12 and Mitchell Solomon added eight points and a career-high 14 rebounds off the bench for Oklahoma State (10-2). He had 11 boards in 12 minutes in the first half to set the career high by the break. Top scorer Jawun Evans scored just six points in 17 minutes and was limited because of foul trouble.

The Cowboys outscored the Islanders 18-5 from the free-throw line and forced 21 turnovers in their final non-conference game.
