STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Phil Forte matched a season high with 23 points to help Oklahoma State defeat Kansas State 77-61 on Monday night.

Marcus Smart scored 18 points and Markel Brown added 15 for the Cowboys (20-10, 8-9 Big 12), who followed their victory over Kansas by winning their fourth straight. Brown, a senior, and Smart, a sophomore, played their final home games for the Cowboys. Smart will declare early for the NBA Draft.
