Sooners Fall to Cowboys

Oklahoma State Beats Oklahoma In Big 12 Opening Round

If the Cowboys miss the tourney, they can blame Malik Newman, who went off for a career-high 30 points on Thursday while shooting 11-of-15 from the field. It also seemed as if the nation's leader in points and assists was primed to net the Sooners their first No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament in 15 years before taking his talents to the National Basketball Association.

"We're just trying to ride the wave", guard Christian James said. In their second meeting, Bill Self's guys hustled to ten more boards in a 14-point win.

Udoka has been vital to the Jayhawks success this season and Kansas hasn't been able to beat Oklahoma State with him.

K-State would reclaim the advantage minutes later, as junior guard Barry Brown, Jr. They're one step closer to a potential showdown with the Jayhawks in the title game after Kansas advanced to a semifinal against Kansas State.

KU will start the pep rallies at 4 p.m.at the Kansas City Live stage.

The game wasn't without drama.

Lindell Wiggington scored 20 points, Cameron Lard added 14 and Zoran Talley 12, but it wasn't enough as the Iowa State Cyclones dropped a 68-64 decision to Texas in Wednesday's second game of the Big 12 Tournament. He missed the first attempt, which forced him to miss the second on goal.

He didn't take a free throw until being fouled by OSU forward Mitchell Solomon on a 3-pointer with eight minutes left. The Cowboys were playing for their NCAA Tournament lives.

Note: You can also watch the game on your computer via ESPN.com, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the WatchESPN app. Kansas covered as a 1.5-point favorite and the game finished with a total of 126 points, which was 21.5 points below the projected point total of 147.5 points. While everyone knows Kansas is a blueblood and sure to make a deep run, can you really count out the other teams?

The Wildcats slumped after Brown left and were down 16 early in the second half, and it would have been easy for this to get out of hand. After the 14:58 mark, OSU missed seven straight attempts, six from 3-point range, and committed three turnovers.

No. 2 Texas Tech vs. The Wildcats were more on the fringe as a No. 10 seed.

The Longhorns weren't almost as efficient as their counterparts-they shot 43.1 percent from the field and 38.9 percent from three-but Jacob Young's out-of-nowhere eruption off the bench kept them afloat. "The 6'2" guard has recorded 20+ points in each of his last three games including a 29 point performance against two-time defensive player of the year, Jevon Carter.

It seemed like the Wildcats were on their way to a much less stressful victory until Desmond Bane hit a three-pointer as time expired in regulation.

With their conference tournament stay over, the Longhorns will now sit and wait for the selection committee's decision.

While the Sooners have had their struggles, standout freshman guard Trae Young has been one of the most compelling players to watch in all of college basketball.

Coming off a career-high 30-point outing a day earlier, Newman's shooting touch was still locked in Friday as the Jackson, Mississippi product connected on eight of his 14 shots from the field. Also in the mix is Baylor (18-13), which earned a bye into the quarterfinal thanks to tiebreakers and will face third-seeded West Virginia on Thursday night.

The Mountaineers were careless in their own right with 16 turnovers. Both of them know what it takes to win these conference tournament games.
