Carroll leads Oklahoma State past Stanford in NIT second round

Carroll leads Oklahoma State past Stanford in NIT second round”

Third-seeded Stanford visits No. 2 seed Oklahoma State on Monday as the NIT's second round resumes.

Stanford's 19 wins were its most since 2014-15, when it won the NIT championship.

The pair of seniors knocked down crucial long-range shots in the fourth quarter as the Cowboys rallied to beat Stanford in the Sweet 16 of the National Invitation Tournament.

Smith and Carroll, two seniors who fake-sparred with each other at midcourt after the 3, led OSU to its 21st victory with 19 and 26 points, respectively.

Mitchell Solomon was the only other Cowboy in double figure scoring with 10 points and 6 rebounds.

The enormous support - more fans showed up Monday than all but three regular-season games - told the story as much as anything.

Sports books list the Cowboys as 7.5-point home favorites, with the over-under for total points scored at 153.5.

"He responded by coming out and having a really, really focused mindset", Boynton said. OSU is waiting on the results of Monday night's USC-Western Kentucky game to learn the site of its quarterfinal game. If top-seeded USC (24-11) defeats WKU, OSU will travel to California to play.

And it remained strong even as OSU (21-14) fell into one of its too-frequent offensive doldrums against a zone defense.

The under has been a great play recently when Oklahoma State is in action.

Stanford wasn't as effective in turning points into turnovers - 7 points from turnovers, compared to Oklahoma State's 23.

Stanford committed 19 turnovers, tied for the fourth-most this season.

The Cardinal came back and won the second and third quarters, winning each quarter by eight and six points.

It led by five going into the fourth quarter, leading Boynton to remind his team what was at stake. "But whatever happens is a win-win and we just have to make sure we come ready to play". Teammates had to separate the two players and Humphrey was handed a Flagrant 1 foul.

"I honestly couldn't believe it", said OSU's Jeffrey Carroll. "And I think this team has really prided itself on the defensive end".
