NCAA Game Summary - Mississippi Valley State at Oklahoma State



(Friday, November 8th)

Final Score: (8) Oklahoma State 117, Mississippi Valley State 62

Stillwater, OK (SportsNetwork.com) - Phil Forte had a game-high 22 points as the eighth-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys crushed the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils 117-62 at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

Forte made 4-of-7 from beyond the arc and knocked down 6-of-6 free throws. Le'Bryan Nash contributed 21 points and 10 rebounds, while Markel Brown and Brian Williams both added 14 points in Oklahoma State's (1-0) dominant showing.

"We have so many great players on this team that it makes my job easy, and tonight was one of those nights," said Forte on his team's performance.

DeAngelo Priar paced Mississippi Valley State (0-1) with 19 points and four rebounds. Anthony McDonald had 16 points in the rout.

Oklahoma State won the only other meeting between these two teams, a 77-74 victory on Dec. 4, 1996.

"Although we won by a huge margin, we got a little bit out of it. We've got to shoot our free throws a little bit better than we did. I loved the passing. I thought we found the open man and made shots, which was nice to see. Overall, I thought it was a pretty good performance," said Oklahoma State head coach Travis Ford.

Nash started off the game with a dunk for the Cowboys and added two from the free throw line to put the Cowboys up 7-2 at 17:20.

McDonald drained threes on back-to-back possessions before converting a pair at the foul line to cut Oklahoma State's lead down to 32-21 with 8:51 remaining in the first.

Forte capped off a 10-0 run with a 23-foot jumper from beyond the arc at 6:05 to make it 42-21. The Cowboys continued to dominate, taking a 34-point lead into the half with a commanding 63-29 edge.

The Cowboys jumped out to another 9-1 run early in the second half, highlighted by a dunk from Michael Cobbins at 15:48 to make it 75-36.

Oklahoma State continued its strong play with an 18-4 run that contained 3- pointers from Forte and Brown. Brown added another three at 7:47 to increase the lead to 98-45.

Priar scored eight of his 19 points in the final 11 minutes. James Currington added two free throws after a three from Oklahoma State's Ford Stuen to account for the final score.
