OSU dominates Delaware State

STILLWATER — Oklahoma State beat Delaware State in every aspect of the game, rebounding, shooting, turnovers, assists and blocks.

When that happens it’s tough not to win.

No. 7 ranked Oklahoma State dominated the Hornets 75-43 on Tuesday night at Gallagher-Iba Arena to move to 10-1. Delaware State dropped to 2-9.

“I liked our effort. I thought we just locked in,” Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford said.

The Cowboys held a 30-16 lead after the first 20 minutes. The Cowboys shot 0 of 8 from deep but only allowed the Hornets to shoot 24 percent. Even though the Cowboys led by double-digits at the break Ford wanted more.

“We were playing hard but I didn’t like the way we were playing,” Ford said. “I told them ‘We’ve got more in us. We’re better than what we’re playing’...It made them play better.”

Right out of the locker room the Cowboys started off strong with a 16-2 run.

Oklahoma State ended the game beating the Hornets 21-0 in fast break points, 36-12 in the paint and 28-6 off of turnovers. The Cowboys defense forced 17 turnovers.

“This team wanted to slow it down a lot. We actually got out and put some pressure on them and we pushed the ball,” Oklahoma State senior Markel Brown said.

Le’Bryan Nash and Brown led the Cowboys with 14 point a piece. Stevie Clark dropped in nine points, including two 3-point shots. Marcus Smart did not score his first bucket until the second half but finished with eight points. Michael Cobbins also chipped in eight points. Phil Forte had a tough night shooting after missing his first eight shots from deep but ended with six points.

The Cowboys will look to No. 20 Colorado in the MGM Grand Showcase in Las Vegas on Saturday
