Anderson lifts Oklahoma State past Nebraska 74-55Mar 6, 2010 - 9:05 PM By MURRAY EVANS Associated Press Writer
STILLWATER, Okla.(AP) -- James Anderson scored 25 points in what likely was his last game at Gallagher-Iba Arena, and Oklahoma State closed the regular season by beating Nebraska 74-55 on Saturday.
Oklahoma State (21-9, 9-7 Big 12) clinched a winning record in conference play and likely also sealed a berth in the NCAA tournament. The Cowboys will be the seventh seed in the Big 12 tournament in Kansas City, Mo., and will play Oklahoma in the first round.
Brandon Richardson scored 16 points for the Cornhuskers (14-17, 2-14), who have lost 14 of their last 16 games and finished last in the Big 12.
Anderson went 9 of 15 from the field. Nebraska had no answer for the 6-foot-6 junior guard nicknamed "Big Game James" for his penchant to come through when the Cowboys need him most. He left the game with 2:14 left to a standing ovation.
