The Oklahoma State basketball team secured a third-place finish at the AdvoCare Invitational with its 90-77 win against No. 19 LSU on Sunday.

Cameron McGriff tallied a career-high 28 points on 10 made shots, which was also a career best. Lindy Waters (16) and Michael Weathers (12) also scored in double figures.

Freshman Isaac Likekele nearly tallied a triple-double, as he scored nine points, dished out eight assists and grabbed nine rebounds. He was a team-best +28 in 30 minutes.

OSU picked up its first win against a ranked opponent this season. Last year, the Cowboys (4-2 overall) had six such games.

Yor Anei moved back into the starting lineup after coming off the bench the past three games. The freshman center scored eight points in 19 minutes of action.

All 12 available Cowboys played. In four minutes of action, Maurice Calloo was a team-worst -12, and he played only one minute after halftime.

OSU returns to action Friday when it heads to Minneapolis to face Minnesota. The game will be played at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Cowboys then return to Oklahoma for a matchup at Tulsa on Dec. 5 and return home on Saturday, Dec. 8, to face Houston.
