EVENING UPDATE: OSU falls to Oregon in NCAA tournament

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Marcus Smart had his pocket picked twice by Dominic Artis, missed four free throws and played like a jittery freshman instead of a heralded NBA prospect.

With its best player struggling all game, fifth-seeded Oklahoma State had little chance against the streaking Oregon Ducks.

Damyean Dotson scored 17 points and Artis had 13 points and four steals while shutting down Smart to help 12th-seeded Oregon beat the Cowboys 68-55 in the second round of the NCAA tournament Thursday.

"I definitely wish I could have done more for my team," Smart said. "I feel like I let my team down. I didn't contribute to my team the way that I usually do. And it hurt us a little bit."

Smart came into the game with the hype of a top NBA prospect but was held to 14 points on 5-for-13 shooting, a disappointing finish to a stellar season for the Cowboys (24-9). He turned the ball over five times, was 4 for 8 from the foul line and was unable to exploit his size advantage against Artis and Johnathan Loyd.
