TULSA - Justin Hurtt had 21 points and Bishop Wheatley added a career-high 17 to lead Tulsa past Oklahoma State 86-65 Wednesday night.
Stephen Idled scored 13 for Tulsa (6-1), Jerome Jordan had 11 points, nine rebounds and six blocks before leaving with a bruised leg, and Ben Uzoh had 11 points and six assists.
Ray Penn led OSU (6-1) with 21 points, followed by Marshall Moses with 13 points and James Anderson with 10, who was 12.8 points below his average while guarded mostly by Wheatley.
Tulsa went inside to the 7-foot Jordan early and often. He scored six of TU's first nine points, and Tulsa's inside dominance eventually forced OSU into a seldom-used zone defense. Tulsa had the answer for that as well, as Donte Medder came off the bench to hit two 3-pointers. Tulsa outrebounded the Cowboys 42-24 and had nine blocks.
