STILLWATER, Oklahoma (Ticker) -- Joey Graham, Daniel Bobik and John Lucas doubled up to extend the nation's longest home winning streak.

Graham collected 23 points and 10 rebounds, Bobik had 13 and a season-high 11 while Lucas added 19 and a season-best 10 assists as No. 11 Oklahoma State recorded its 26th consecutive home victory with a 77-57 rout of Big 12 rival Kansas State.

The Cowboys did much of their damage from the 3-point line, connecting on 11 of their 20 attempts - eight in the second half. All of their victories have come by at least 10 points and 10 of their 16 wins have come by 15 points or more.

"John played a great game tonight. Daniel was awesome and Joey was awesome," Oklahoma State forward Ivan McFarlin said. "I really think that we played well as a whole tonight."

Oklahoma State (16-3, 6-2 Big 12) led throughout most of the contest, but when Tyler Hughes brought Kansas State to within 38-37 with 16:32 to go, the Cowboys went to work.

Lucas began and ended a 16-3 burst with two of his five 3-pointers while Graham added five points during the spurt that put the game out of reach.

"Joey Graham is a great player and John Lucas is a great player," Kansas State coach Jim Wooldridge said. "They are shot makers and playmakers, two of the best in the league."

Bobik connected on three shots from the arc in the contest while recording his first-career double-double. Lucas notched his third while Graham collected the fifth of his collegiate career.

"Coach just told me to go to the offensive board a little bit more," Bobik said. "I just got more active. It got me in the mode to get more rebounds. Sometimes the ball just falls in the right place."

"I liked the energy in the seond half of the game and the way the guys shared the ball," Cowboys assistant coach Sean Sutton said. "There were 19 assists on 25 (field goals) and I'm not sure I've been involved in a game where three guys have double-doubles."

It is the first time the Cowboys have had three players record double-doubles in the same game since Maurice Baker, Andre Williams and Fredrik Jonzen accomplished the feat on January 23, 2001 against Texas A&M.

Big 12 Player of the Week, Jeremiah Massey, kept the Wildcats close by scoring 18 of his 25 points in the opening half. He also hauled in eight rebounds.

"The first half took a little out of me," Massey said. "I am a player that will play through fatigue and I didn't hit as many shots in the second half."

Fred Peete added 14 points for Kansas State (13-4, 3-4), which has lost its last eight meetings here.
