Card Clicks: Stanford Falls to Oklahoma State

Stanford played much better than it did against Butler, but the result was the same, a 79-68 loss at Oklahoma State in the final game of the Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series.

Oklahoma State was led by 5-foot-9 guard Keiton Page, who scored 20 of his 23 points in the second half. The first of Page's career-high five 3-pointers--one of which he drained from the edge of the midcourt logo at Gallagher-Iba Arena--gave the Cowboys a 34-33 halftime lead.

Josh Owens had 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Cardinal, while freshman point guard Aaron Bright also played well in defeat. Bright finished with a career-high 15 points, four assists, and zero turnovers, and made all eight of his free throws.

The Cardinal shot better from the free throw line as a team, making all 13 of its attempts in the first half. Stanford shot only 9-for-16 after the break, and had some crucial misses down the stretch after trimming a 14-point Cowboys lead to six.
