STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Keiton Page scored a career-high 40 points, Le'Bryan Nash added 18 and Oklahoma State snapped Texas' four-game winning streak by beating the Longhorns 90-78 on Saturday.

Page erupted for 27 first-half points, matching his previous season-best for a game, and ended up becoming only the sixth player in school history to reach the 40-point mark.

Page hit all 20 of his free throws and coach Travis Ford pulled him from the game with 35 seconds left to a roaring standing ovation from the crowd. The two shared a hug, slapped hands and had another brief embrace before Page greeted the rest of the Cowboys (13-14, 6-8 Big 12) by the bench.

Myck Kabongo scored a career-high 22 points for Texas (17-10, 7-7) and Big 12 scoring leader J'Covan Brown added 20.
