Taylor Brown scored a career-high 21 points, but it wasn't enough as the Oklahoma State Cowboys roped the Bradley Braves 68-57 in Las Vegas on Friday. James Anderson paced the Cowboys with 19 points, including 7-7 from the free throw line.
Bradley trailed by nine at the half, and never posed a severe threat after the break. Oklahoma State led by as many as 20 points in the second half, and coasted to their fifth consecutive win to open the season.
No other Brave had more than Sam Maniscalco's eight points, and Bradley was a frigid 14-24 from the foul line.
Bradley faces #20 Illinois tonight at 7:00pm, after the Fighting Illini squandered a 16-point halftime lead and lost to Utah 60-58.
