STILLWATER, Oklahoma (Ticker) -- Eddie Sutton's team worked up a good sweat and headed home for the holidays in a positive mood.
Joey Graham and John Lucas scored 21 points each as No. 3 Oklahoma State rolled to its biggest victory of the season, 92-35, over Northwestern Oklahoma State.
"Both are great players and know how to play," Rangers coach Bob Battisti said. "The rest of the team feeds off them and Lucas shot the ball well. Graham is another guy that just doesn't make mistakes. Oklahoma State is a very special team."
The Cowboys (9-0) have won every game by a double dight margin and have beaten their opponents by an average of more than 26 points.
Graham had 13 of his points in the first half for Oklahoma State, which was in control from the opening tip and finished on a 24-5 run to take a 44-17 lead at intermission.
The second half was nearly an instant replay of the first, as the Cowboys finished shooting 55 percent (35-of-64) from the field and hitting a school-record 15 3-pointers.
"We played a good game tonight," Lucas said. "Northwestern came in and played tough. But we had to send a message to the other basketball teams around the country. We wanted to leave on a good note before Christmas."
James OnCurry added a career-high 14 points for Oklahoma State, which had a 42-27 rebounding edge and forced 22 turnovers.
"Offensive rebounding is something that I have been working on every day in practice," Graham said. "I have just tried to transition it over into the game. That is something I know I have to do." Graham had eight rebounds.
Northwestern Oklahoma State (5-4), an NAIA school located in Alva, was playing the Cowboys for the first time since the 1916-1917 season.
Tramain Davis scored 12 points for the Rangers, who shot 27 percent (15-of-55) from the field and was just 1-of-2 from the free throw line.
"They (Oklahoma State) got the potential to be the top team in the country," Davis said. "They are really good. They have their rotations down. It just seems like they do everything right."
