Brown comes up big, Cowboys escape West Virginia
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) -- Markel Brown hit a 3-pointer with 12 seconds to lift No. 11 Oklahoma State to a 73-72 win over West Virginia on Saturday.
The Cowboys (14-2, 2-1 Big 12) trailed for most of the game, but got solid efforts from their top two scorers in the final minutes.
Marcus Smart had 22 points and 13 rebounds. Le'Bryan Nash added 18 points and Brown finished with 12.
Terry Henderson scored a season-high 21 points for West Virginia (10-6, 2-1), which saw its three-game winning streak snapped. Juwan Staten added 20 points and Devin Williams had 12 points and 13 rebounds.
Henderson's 3-pointer with 1:17 left put West Virginia ahead 72-70 before Brown answered a minute later.
Staten missed a layup in traffic in the closing seconds that would have won it for the Mountaineers.
