STILLWATER, Okla. - Obi Muonelo hit four straight 3-pointers in a 2-minute stretch, and Oklahoma State denied Bob Knight his 900th career win with a 74-55 defeat of Texas Tech today.

Muonelo had a season-high 21 points and broke open a close game midway through the second half when he hit two 3s from the left side and then two more from the top of the key.

Freshman James Anderson drained a 3 from the right side, and that drew a timeout from Knight, Division I basketball's winningest coach.

Muonelo flapped his arms to encourage Oklahoma State's largest home crowd of the season, while Knight slowly entered his team's huddle on the opposite sideline.

The Cowboys (10-5, 1-0 Big 12) scored the next six points and held Texas Tech (9-6, 0-1) scoreless for another 4 minutes after the timeout to extend a 21-2 run and build a 67-41 lead.

Martin Zeno scored 10 points and Esmir Rizvic had nine points and a career-high 12 rebounds for the Red Raiders, who got ahead early by controlling the boards and getting to the free throw line.
