OSU’s Bryce Thompson had given the Cowboys the lead 55-54 with 33 seconds left, but Avery Anderson fouled Jalen Moore on a three-point shot with 8 seconds to play and Moore made two of the three free throws.
Thompson missed a three-point attempt in the final seconds that could have won the game.
Thompson and Isaac Likekele led OSU with 12 points, with Rondel Walker scoring 11.
The Cowboys made just 3 of 17 from three point range, 6 of 12 at the free throw line and had 18 turnovers.
OSU trailed 30-22 at halftime before starting the second half with a 15-4 run to take the lead.
The Cowboys fall to 1-1 on the season.
