Chris Hagan poured in an MSU-record 50 points to lead the MSU Mustangs to a 91-82 win over Cameron in Lawton Monday night.

Hagan shot 17 of 26 from the floor, including 8 three-pointers, and went 8-10 from the free throw line to break the school's 48-year-old record, shared by Roger Ellis and Earl Beechum.

Ellis scored 46 points against McMurry in 1962, then Beechum equaled it in the 1966 NAIA National Tournament against Monmouth.

Hagan scored 21 in the first half, then 29 in the second as the Mustangs held off a late Cameron rally to improve to 7-1 on the season.

They'll face NAIA Northwest Oklahoma St. on Thursday at D.L. Ligon Coliseum at 7:30 PM.
