Oklahoma St. 90, Texas 78
Keiton Page scored a career-high 40 points, Le’Bryan Nash added
18 and Oklahoma State snapped Texas’ four-game winning streak by
beating the Longhorns 90-78 on Saturday.
Page erupted for 27 first-half points, matching his previous
season-best for a game, and ended up becoming only the sixth player
in school history to reach the 40-point mark.
Page hit all 20 of his free throws and coach Travis Ford pulled
him from the game with 35 seconds left to a roaring standing
ovation from the crowd. The two shared a hug, slapped hands and had
another brief embrace before Page greeted the rest of the Cowboys
(13-14, 6-8 Big 12) by the bench.
Myck Kabongo scored a career-high 22 points for Texas (17-10,
7-7) and Big 12 scoring leader J’Covan Brown added 20.
