Le'Bryan Nash and Markel Brown scored 16 points apiece to lead five Oklahoma State players in double figures, and the 14th-ranked Cowboys overcame a terrible start to beat cold-shooting West Virginia 73-57 Saturday.

Marcus Smart added 14 points, Brian Williams scored 13 and Michael Cobbins had 10 for Oklahoma State (20-6, 10-4), which shook off a double-overtime loss to No. 9 Kansas on Wednesday.

Oklahoma State overcame an early six-point deficit and never trailed after halftime, using its defense to stifle any comeback attempt by the Mountaineers (13-14, 6-8).

Aaric Murray led West Virginia with 11 points and Matt Humphrey scored 10.
