STILLWATER, Oklahoma (Ticker) -- John Lucas scored 20 points as seventh-ranked Oklahoma State clinched the Big 12 Conference regular-season title with a 70-41 win over last-place Texas A&M.
Joey Graham had 14 points and Tony Allen 10 for the Cowboys (24-3, 14-2), who already were assured of the top seed in the Big 12 Conference tournament and clinched their first outright conference title since 1964-65.
"It was a very special day," Oklahoma State coach Eddie Sutton said. "I told the team that we've won a lot of championships during the years that I have coached, but I'm not sure that any of those teams is more special than this one because this team has come so far."
The Cowboys were never in trouble against the struggling Aggies, building a 30-16 halftime advantage and leading by no less than 12 the entire second half.
It was an enjoyable afternoon for Lucas, a Baylor transfer who made 4-of-9 shots from 3-point range. Afterwards, Lucas was among those players who cut down the nets.
"This is my first time but I want to keep doing it again," Lucas said. "I love the feeling."
The Aggies did not score in the final 4:06 and the final score marked the largest lead for the Cowboys.
Nick Anderson and Acie Law each scored 10 points for the Aggies (7-20, 0-16), who have dropped 16 straight games - all in conference play - and joined the 1998-99 Baylor squad as the only teams to go winless in the Big 12.
The Aggies tried a zone defense to take some time off the clock, but that did not keep the game close.
"Had we kept it close longer I think we would have gained some confidence but we would come away with a misfire and I would see a look on their face and it wasn't a good look," said Texas A&M coach Melvin Watkins, who will likely be fired after his sixth straight losing season.
Oklahoma State has won nine straight and 17 of the last 18 meetings against Texas A&M.
The Cowboys limited the Aggies to 34 percent shooting from the floor (16-of-47), with Antoine Wright making just 2-of-11 shots.
