The Oklahoma State Cowboys wrapped up their international tour with their fourth win in four tries.

OSU beat the Gran Canaria All-Stars 85-69, sparked by an outstanding second half from heralded freshman Marcus Smart.

Smart scored a game-high 16 points and dropped 13 of those in the second half on 4-for-4 shooting from the floor and 4-for-4 from the foul line.

Markel Brown was close behind the freshman with 15 points of his own. Smart and Brown each dished out three assists.

The Pokes jumped out to an early 12-2 lead but the All-Stars pushed back to eventually tie the game at 21-21 midway through the first half before the Cowboys jumped back to take a 43-37 halftime lead.

Joining Smart and Brown with a second half burst was sophomore Cezar Guerrero with nine points in the half. Brian Williams finished with 12 points for the Cowboys, freshman Kamari Murphy had eight and Le'Bryan Nash finished with seven.

Michael Cobbins and Marek Soucek each grabbed a team-high seven rebounds in the game while Murphy added six.

OSU held the All-Stars to 33 percent shooting but the game remained competitive because Gran Canaria connected on 8-of-20 from the 3-point line.
