Perhaps the most telling stat? OSU forced 24 turnovers, while giving the ball away just seven times. The Cowboys scored 33 points off of those turnovers.
OSU, meanwhile, got two high-flying follow-slams from big man Michael Cobbins to go along with 10 points and seven rebounds.
And an efficient shooting performance from the field from Le’Bryan Nash (5-of-7, 16 points).
And another four-point play from superstar Marcus Smart, who finished with 13 points, four rebounds and five assists.
And a balanced offensive effort that saw all five starters finish in double figures for the first time since 2009. The Cowboys used solid ball movement to record 13 assists of 25 made field goals while the Gamecocks consistently kept a defender locked on Smart.
“It just shows that Oklahoma State has more scorers than Marcus,” Nash said.
With a large cushion already built, the Cowboys were content to slow the pace and churn the clock after intermission.
The Cowboys next face Louisiana Tech Dec. 14 at the All-College Classic at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
