STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Leyton Hammonds scored 22 points – nine in the first three minutes – to help lead Oklahoma State to a 73-55 victory over Longwood Tuesday night.

Hammonds made his first three shots from 3-point range and connected on 11 of 12 free throws, and Joe Burton added 13 points, for the Cowboys (7-3), who won their second in a row after two straight losses.

Leron Fisher scored 18 points to lead the Lancers (3-8), who lost their fourth straight. Khris Lane contributed 13 points and 10 rebounds.

In a strange game that featured a 42-minute delay when a power outage knocked out the arena’s lights midway through the second half, Oklahoma State watched it’s first-half lead of 19 points evaporate but, following the delay, built an even larger lead.
