STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Landry Shamet scored a career-high 30 points, and No. 6 Wichita State defeated Oklahoma State 78-66 on Saturday.

Conner Frankamp scored 14 points and Darral Willis, Jr. added 12 for the Shockers (8-1). Wichita State made 12 of 26 3-point attempts and outrebounded the Cowboys 36-26.

Wichita State defeated Baylor of the Big 12 last Saturday. The Shockers' only loss was by a point to Notre Dame.

Tavarius Shine scored a career-high 20 points and Mitchell Solomon added a career-best 17 for Oklahoma State (7-2).

Oklahoma State first-year coach Mike Boynton was trying to get his first win over a ranked team. Instead, the Cowboys had their 15-game non-conference home win streak snapped.

Oklahoma State led for most of the first half, but Wichita State closed with an 8-0 run. Shamet made a 3-pointer in the closing seconds to give the Shockers a 26-23 lead. Oklahoma State did not score for the final 3:04 of the half and didn't make a field goal for the final 6:09, when Oklahoma State led by eight for its largest advantage before the break.

Shaquille Morris' only points came on a 3-pointer with about 8 minutes remaining, but the shot gave the Shockers a five-point lead. Wichita State remained in control the rest of the way.
