Smart had 23 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and six steals for Oklahoma State (21-13). He is projected to be a high NBA draft pick. He passed up the NBA draft last year. The Cowboys won five of seven games coming in, a run that coincided with Smart's returning from a three-game suspension for shoving a Texas Tech fan.
