Balanced attack leads Oklahoma State past Charleston 70-58

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) Cameron McGriff and Michael Weathers scored 16 points apiece to lead a balanced attack and Oklahoma State used a 33-5 midgame spurt on the way to a 70-58 victory over Charleston on Sunday.

Thomas Dziagwa scored 14 points and Isaac Likekele and Lindy Waters added 10 each as five Cowboys reached double figures.

Fresh off his first career double-double on Wednesday in a win against Texas-San Antonio, McGriff also grabbed a game-high seven rebounds as the Cowboys (2-1) held a 39-30 edge on the boards.

McGriff had five points to help Oklahoma State take an early lead. But Charleston (3-1) went on a 17-3 spree, capped by a Grant Riller bucket, to open its biggest lead of the game, 26-18, with 4:29 to play in the first half. It was the Cougars' final basket of the first half. McGriff's second trey of the half ignited a 12-1 spurt as the Cowboys took a 30-27 advantage at halftime.

The Cowboys opened the second half with 11 unanswered points and increased the spurt to 20-4 thanks to three treys by Dziagwa. OSU took its biggest lead of the game 51-31 with 13:06 left to play.

Charleston pulled within nine on three occasions after intermission - the last time coming at 62-53 with 4:41 remaining.

Jarrell Brantley finished with 24 points - the only Cougar to score in double digits. He made 10 of his 15 field goal attempts, while his teammates combined to make just 13 of 45 attempts.

MISSING IN ACTION:

Riller, the Cougars' leading scorer who came in averaging 23 points per game, made just 2 of 14 shots against the Cowboys and scored seven points.

Charleston: The Cougars host No. 22 LSU on Thursday.
