Oklahoma State continued its winning streak in Puerto Rico Friday when they beat Tennessee 62-45. Marcus Smart and Le'Bryan Nash scored 17 points each.

The Cowboys now move into the championship game at the Puerto Rico Tipoff.

Smart, who also had nine rebounds, scored on a pair of layups and a 3-pointer during an 11-4 Cowboy run in the second half that put the game out of reach at 54-35 with under eight minutes to play.

Markel Brown had 13 points for Oklahoma State (3-0).

Trae Golden finished with 11 points for Tennessee (2-1).

The matchups for Sunday's final and third-place games will be determined later Friday following the outcome of No. 6 North Carolina State's game against UMass. The Cowboys will play the winner of that game at 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
