November 16 , 2017
In Stillwater, Brandon Averette scored 21 points and added nine assists and four rebounds to lead Oklahoma State to a 91-48 victory over Oral Roberts.
Mitchell Solomon had 12 points — all in the first half — along with seven rebounds and three assists, and Thomas Dziagwa and Zack Dawson each scored 11 points for Oklahoma State.
The Cowboys continued to employ their stifling, pressuring defensive style, limiting Oral Roberts to just 33.3 percent shooting (20-of-60), including 16.7 percent (3-of-18) from 3-point range. This marks the first time since the first three games of 2014-15 that Oklahoma State has held opponents under 35 percent in three consecutive contests.
OSU’s bench was dominant in this one, for it outscored ORU in bench points, 51-11.
Albert Owens netted 16 paced to lead the Golden Eagles.
The matchup featured Cowboys assistant coach Scott Sutton facing his former team, where he was head coach for the previous 18 seasons. The Golden Eagles are led by new head coach Paul Mills, a former longtime Baylor assistant.
The Progressive Legends Classic continues on Friday with No. 16 Texas A&M hosting UCSB.
