Cowboys are 6-1 without Williams in the lineup. They could get stronger once he returns. “I think Brian Williams will play this year,” OSU coach Travis Ford said.

“I'm probably getting a little ahead of myself, but I'm optimistic.”

UP NEXT: MISSOURI STATE

The Cowboys remain at home for Game 2 of a six-game homestand, hosting Missouri State at 3 p.m. Saturday.

OSU won in Springfield last year, 72-67, with Le'Bryan Nash scoring 12 of his 19 points down the stretch.

The Bears are 2-6 after losing 61-42 at Tulsa Wednesday night.

POINT GUARDS COLLIDE

The matchup of the night was front and center for all to see: OSU's Marcus Smart vs. South Florida's Anthony Collins at the point.

The two went at each other throughout in a rugged battle.

Smart finished with a game-high 15 points and five assists, with six rebounds, but also turned it over an uncharacteristic four times. Collins totaled 12 points, four assists and four steals.

“If I wasn't coaching the game, I would have had a blast watching him and Smart go at each other,” said Bulls coach Stan Heath. “That was a great matchup. Two really, really good guards.”
