Oklahoma State put together a 20-9 run early in the second half after Texas Tech had moved in front by a point.

The Cowboys (15-17) shot 51 percent from the field and made all 16 of their foul shots. Keiton Page led the way with 20 points and Brian Williams had 19.

Jordan Tolbert scored 16 for the Red Raiders (8-23).
