Stanford men's basketball lose to Cowboys, fall to 1-4 on the road

 

Junior Josh Owens had 21 points and 10 rebounds but the Stanford men's basketball team suffered its second straight loss, dropping a 79-68 decision to host Oklahoma State as part of the Pac-10/Big 12 Hardwood Classic series Tuesday night.

Jeremy Green added 17 points as four Stanford players reached double figures overall. Aaron Bright had 15 and Dwight Powell 10.

The Cardinal (6-4) returns home to host Yale at 7 p.m. next Tuesday. Stanford is undefeated in five games at Maples Pavilion this season.

Stanford led, 33-28, with less than a minute to play in the first half. The Cowboys scored the final six points of the period to take a 34-33 halftime lead. Oklahoma State (11-1) eventually completed a 14-2 run that bridged both halves.

The Cowboys were 11-of-19 from long range, including Keiton Page's fifth of the night with 59 seconds remaining to play.

Green made a pair of free throws with 1:33 left to bring the Cardinal within 69-63.
