STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Juwan Staten scored 22 points and had seven assists, Gary Browne added a career-high 18 points and No. 23 West Virginia beat Oklahoma State 73-63 on Saturday.

Browne, who also had eight rebounds, scored 16 of his points in the second half for West Virginia (21-6, 9-5 Big 12), which has won three of its last four.

Le'Bryan Nash scored 12 points and had four assists for Oklahoma State (17-10, 7-8), which lost its third straight game.

After entering the second half tied at 25, West Virginia pulled away with a 13-2 run that established a 41-31 lead when Browne sank two free throws with 13:06 remaining.

Much of that crucial run was fueled by offensive rebounds and Oklahoma State turnovers, two categories in which the Mountaineers lead the nation.
