No. 5 Oklahoma State put on another offensive clinic on Monday, blowing out South Florida, 93-67 in Tampa.
Marcus Smart and Markel Brown each had 25 points and Brown flirted with a triple-double, adding seven assists and eight rebounds. Overall, the Cowboys shot 50 percent from the field and were 9-16 from three-point range. Brown alone was 5-6 from beyond the arc.
South Florida, which suffered its first loss of the season, hung with Oklahoma State for a while, trailing by only 10 a few minutes into the second half. But Brian Williams then scored eight points in under two minutes and the Cowboys never looked back. He finished with 13 points.
Center John Egbunu led the Bulls with 15 points and Victor Rudd had 14 more, but Oklahoma State had too much firepower. Le'Bryan Nash had 15 points and Phil Forte came off the bench to score 11 more, giving the Cowboys five players in double-figures.
Incredibly, the 93 points the Cowboys scored actually tied a season low. Through five games, they are averaging a whopping 102 points, second only to Boise State's 103 ppg.
Next up, Oklahoma State takes its talents to Kissimmee for the Old Spice Classic. The Cowboys take on Purdue in the first round on Thursday.
