Stillwater, OK, United States (4E Sports) – Oklahoma State Cowboys guard Marcus Smart found it necessary to apologize to teammates after being held to just four points in their 81-75 win over the West Virginia Mountaineers.
“Today wasn’t one of my most proudest moments I lost my composure and left my team hanging it won’t happen again and I apologize to my team,” he twitted.
The sophomore guard had shown his frustration by kicking a chair during the game.
Smart went 1-for-7 but did grab five rebounds and dish four assists in Saturday’s game at Gallagher-Iba Arena.
It was his lowest scoring output of the season and only the third time this season he has been held to single digits.
Smart missed his first four field goal attempts and committed two turnovers in the opening 10 minutes.
He eventually fouled out after 25 minutes of play.
Former Duke star and current ESPN analyst Jay Williams responded to Smart’s tweets with a note of encouragement, noting that the great ones are the most competitive.
