Oklahoma St. 74, Nebraska 55

James Anderson scored 25 points in what likely was his last game

at Gallagher-Iba Arena, and Oklahoma State closed the regular

season by beating Nebraska 74-55 on Saturday.

Oklahoma State (21-9, 9-7 Big 12) clinched a winning record in

conference play and likely also sealed a berth in the NCAA

tournament. The Cowboys will be the seventh seed in the Big 12

tournament in Kansas City, Mo., and will play Oklahoma in the first

round.

Brandon Richardson scored 16 points for the Cornhuskers (14-17,

2-14), who have lost 14 of their last 16 games and finished last in

the Big 12.

Anderson went 9 of 15 from the field. Nebraska had no answer for

the 6-foot-6 junior guard nicknamed “Big Game James” for his

penchant to come through when the Cowboys need him most. He left

the game with 2:14 left to a standing ovation.
