Oklahoma St. 80, Texas-Arlington 63
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Maurice Robinson scored a career-high 25 points Wednesday night in helping lead Oklahoma State to its 21st straight home victory, 80-63 over Texas-Arlington.
Robinson made 11 of his 16 shots from the floor as for the fourth straight game, the Cowboys (3-1) shot better from the field than they did from the free throw line. Oklahoma State made just 39 percent of its foul shots, compared with 52 percent of its field goals.
Jason Skaer tied his career high with 17 points, while Jerome Lambert returned to the lineup by scoring 15 points and grabbing nine rebounds. Lambert had played just 31 minutes in the first three games due to injury and illness.
Texas-Arlington (2-3) got 14 points from Brian Myers and 13 from Reggie Brown. Damon Johnson added 10 points and 11 rebounds. UTA fell behind 7-0 in the first minute and never recovered.
Lambert and Marlon Dorsey started in place of Chianti Roberts and Andre Owens, who had missed classes. Owens wound up playing 27 minutes and finished with nine assists. Roberts played just one minute and then left with an apparent sprained ankle.
The victory was the Cowboys’ 57th straight against non-Big Eight opponents at home.
Robinson’s previous career best was 18 points, last weekend against Arizona State.
