Freshman star G/F Le'Bryan Nash exploded for 19 second half points and the Oklahoma State Cowboys upset the second ranked Missouri Tigers 79-72 for their 10th win on the season.
Nash, the once highly-coveted Dallas-area recruit, smashed his career-high in scoring, finishing the night with 27 points to go along with four rebounds and four assists.
Oklahoma State held a 37-36 halftime lead over the Tigers, who entered the night winners of four straight games and fresh off of an upset of Baylor in Waco.
Senior F Ricardo Ratliffe contributed 25 points and 12 rebounds, but the Tigers had no answer for Nash and fellow freshman Brian Williams, who finished with 22 points.
The loss drops Missouri to 18-2 on the season, and two games back in the loss column in Big 12 conference play behind Kansas. Oklahoma State is now back at .500, and will look to carry this momentum to their game at Texas A&M this Saturday.
