Lecomte Scores 30 In Baylor's 76-60 Win Over Oklahoma State

Posted: Updated:
WACO, Texas -

Manu Lecomte scored 25 of his career-high 30 points after halftime as Baylor avoided a rare three-game losing streak with a 76-60 victory over Oklahoma State on Monday night.

After blowing a 10-point lead and trailing at halftime, the Bears (12-6, 2-4 Big 12) went ahead to stay when Lecomte hit a 3-pointer on their first shot of the second half.

Lecomte finished 11-of-17 shooting, including 7-of-12 3-pointers to match his career high for made 3s.

Jo Lual-Acuil Jr. had 12 points for Baylor, while Mark Vital had 10 rebounds and eight assists.

The Bears made three consecutive 3s in a 77-second span, with Jake Lindsey's long-range shot sandwiched by a pair from Lecomte, to go ahead 42-34 with 12 minutes left.

Baylor hasn't had a three-game losing streak in four years, when it lost five in a row from Jan. 15-28, 2014.

Cameron McGriff had a career high 16 points for Oklahoma State (12-6, 2-4), and Tavarius Shine had 14.

Jeffrey Carroll, playing his 100th career game with the Cowboys, finished with eight points on 2-of-12 shooting. He had averaged 19 points over his previous eight games.

BIG PICTURE

Oklahoma St.: The Cowboys couldn't pull off another late big comeback. They were coming off a 65-64 win at Texas, where they overcame a 12-point deficit in the final 5:55. Oklahoma State did have that first-half comeback at Baylor, but fell behind quickly after halftime and the margin grew to 20.

Baylor: The Bears still haven't had a halftime lead in a Big 12 game this season. Since that five-game losing streak in 2014, they have an overall record of 98-41.
