STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Cameron McGriff and Michael Weathers scored 16 points apiece to lead a balanced attack and Oklahoma State used a 33-5 midgame spurt on the way to a 70-58 victory over Charleston on Sunday.
Thomas Dziagwa scored 14 points and Isaac Likekele and Lindy Waters added 10 each as five Cowboys reached double figures.
Fresh off his first career double-double on Wednesday in a win against Texas-San Antonio, McGriff also grabbed a game-high seven rebounds as the Cowboys (2-1) held a 39-30 edge on the boards.
McGriff had five points to help Oklahoma State take an early lead. But Charleston (3-1) went on a 17-3 spree, capped by a Grant Riller bucket, to open its biggest lead of the game, 26-18, with 4:29 to play in the first half. It was the Cougars’ final basket of the first half. McGriff’s second trey of the half ignited a 12-1 spurt as the Cowboys took a 30-27 advantage at halftime.
