Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton emptied his bench early by playing 11 guys in the first 10 minutes of the season opener Wednesday night against Oral Roberts, but it was his veterans who closed out the 80-75 victory with clutch free-throw shooting.

The Cowboys led by as many as 16 points in the second half, but ORU cut the lead to 72-71 with 1:13 remaining and OSU was forced to win at the line. OSU closed the game shooting 8-of-10 from the line in the final minute, with Isaac Likekele, Cameron McGriff, Thomas Dziagwa and Lindy Waters taking the shots.
