OKLAHOMA CITY -- James Anderson scored a career-high 33 points and Byron Eaton had all 22 of his points in the second half as Oklahoma State beat Rhode Island 86-82 Saturday night in the All-College Classic.
The tandem of former McDonald's All-Americans provided nearly all of the Cowboys' offense in the second half, and Eaton's two free throws with 3:29 left gave Oklahoma State (8-3) the lead for good.
Anderson set up Anthony Brown's jumper with a steal and then added a pair of free throws of his own to push the lead to six, and that was enough of a cushion for the Cowboys to protect down the stretch.
Kahiem Seawright led the Rams (8-4) with 17 points but was blocked inside in the final minute to help thwart any hopes of a comeback. Jimmy Baron added 16 points, Marquis Jones scored 15 and Keith Cothran and Delroy James each had 12 for Rhode Island.
