STILLWATER, Okla. -- James Anderson scored 26 points, Keiton Page added 20 points and Oklahoma State relied on its outside shooting to beat Coppin State 79-61 on Tuesday night without suspended forward Marshall Moses.
Moses watched the game from the Cowboys bench in a gray sweater after being charged earlier in the day with possession of marijuana and driving with a suspended license. Moses, who was averaging a double-double, was arrested early Monday morning, and coach Travis Ford decided to make him sit out one game.
Without his presence inside, Oklahoma State (12-2) attempted a season-high 34 3-pointers and matched its season best by making 10. Page led the way with five 3-pointers, and Obi Muonelo made three while scoring 15 points.
Michael Harper led Coppin State (5-7) with 21 points.

Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
Guard Naz Mitrou-Long, whose 2015-16 season ended in December due to hip problems, has been granted a hardship waiver for the coming season, Iowa State said.
As the Sooners look to life without superstar Buddy Hield and his sidekicks, it's clear their unseasoned players will need to grow up fast.
