STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Byron Eaton matched his career high
with 25 points and added a season-best eight assists as Oklahoma
State held off Baylor 93-83 tonight.
Eaton scored 16 points before halftime as the Cowboys surged to
a 20-point lead on the strength of 55 percent shooting before the
Bears came back.
Baylor scored the first six points of the second half and Henry
Dugat capped an eight-point surge with a three-point play that made
it 58-49 with 11:53 remaining.
Baylor had a chance to get closer when Curtis Jerrells picked
off an outlet pass at midcourt, but he wasn't able to connect on a
3-pointer from the right wing.
James Anderson answered with a three-point play at the other end
for OSU, starting a run of eight straight points that extended the
Cowboys' lead to 17.
Tweety Carter scored nine points to get Baylor (17-6, 5-4) back
within nine in the final minute, but it was too little too late.
Freshman LaceDarius Dunn led Baylor with 26 points, Carter
scored 18 and Jerrells added 13.
