STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Mario Boggan continued his early season dominance inside, scoring 21 points to lead Oklahoma State to an 86-67 win over Sam Houston State on Sunday afternoon.

Oklahoma State maintained, then built on, its advantage in the second half. JamesOn Curry, quiet in the first half, was slammed to the ground on an intentional foul with 15:59 left, then reeled off 10 points in the next 2:20, putting the Cowboys ahead 55-34.
Oklahoma State held the Bearkats to 36.4-percent field-goal shooting and forced 23 turnovers.
Curry finished with 14 points, and Obi Muonelo, a freshman guard, reached double figures for the fourth straight game with 11 points.
Oklahoma State will host Southern on Tuesday night, capping a stretch in which the Cowboys will play four games -- all at Gallagher-Iba Arena -- in seven days.
