STILLWATER - James Anderson needed a while to get going Wednesday night. A long while.

Yet once he did, the Cowboys followed, pulling past Texas A&M 76-69 at Gallagher-Iba Arena.

Anderson attempted just three shots in the first half and didn't score until making his only field goal with 1:36 left before intermission. He jumpstarted himself - and Oklahoma State - with scoring and playmaking in the second half, when he scored 17 of his 19 points and assisted on three-point trips for Keiton Page and Obi Muonelo.

Muonelo scored a season-high 24 points and Page added 16 as the Cowboys won their third straight conference game to improve to 16-4 overall, 4-2 in the Big 12.

The Aggies, dropping to 14-6 and 3-3, were led by Donald Sloan's game-high 27 points, the most scored against OSU this season.

Next up for the Cowboys: a road game at Missouri at 1 p.m. Saturday.
