LAHAINA, Hawaii -

Jeffrey Carroll had 20 points and Oklahoma State racked up 19 steals in a 97-70 win over Georgetown on Wednesday in the third-place game of the Maui Invitational.

Oklahoma State (5-1) bounced back from a 32-point demolishing by No. 4 North Carolina in the semifinals by revving up its pressure defense.

The Cowboys turned 28 turnovers by Georgetown into 41 points and had a 59-16 advantage in bench points to close their trip to Maui with a resounding victory.

Jawun Evans had 13 points and Brandon Averette 12 for Oklahoma State.

Georgetown (2-4) shot 51 percent, but lost because of the shots they couldn't get up from the multitude of turnovers that had coach John Thompson III shaking his fists in anger at times on the sideline.

Rodney Pryor led the Hoyas with 15 points and Bradley Hayes added 13.
