Cowboys Rally to Beat Stanford in NIT

Oklahoma State's men's basketball team kept its season alive on Monday night, coming from behind to beat Stanford 71-65 in the second round of the National Invitation Tournament on Monday night at Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater.

OSU hit five of their nine three-pointers in the fourth quarter and went on a 12-1 run in the fourth quarter to rally from a 5-point deficit after three quarters.

Jeffrey Carroll hit five of those three-pointers and led OSU with 26 points.

Kendall Smith added three from beyond the arc and had 19 points, including a three that essentially clinched the game, giving OSU a 65-55 lead.

Mitchell Solomon was the only other Cowboy in double figure scoring with 10 points and 6 rebounds.

OSU had to overcome poor free throw shooting, going just 12-for-23, and were outrebounded by 15, 55-40.

The Cowboys made up for it by valuing the ball, committing just six turnovers to Stanford's 19.

OSU outscored the Cardinal 23-7 off turnovers.

The Cowboys improved to 21-14 on the season and advance to the NIT quarterfinals.

OSU will host Western Kentucky on Wednesday night at 7:00 pm in Stillwater.

The Hilltoppers beat USC 79-75 on Monday night to advance to the quarterfinals.

The winner of the OSU-Western Kentucky game will advance to the NIT Final Four in New York City's Madison Square Garden.
