Oklahoma State beats Oklahoma 71-60 in Big 12 opening round

Oklahoma State beats Oklahoma 71-60 in Big 12 opening round

After watching eighth-seeded Oklahoma State race out of the gates to the tune of 62.5 percent shooting and a 24-14 lead that forced Self to call a pair of timeouts in a span of 96 seconds, Newman answered OSU's most recent onslaught with 10 points in the final 10:31 of the first half - to match the 10 consecutive Kansas points he scored in the game's opening minutes - to help Kansas take a one-point lead into the half.

"It was tough for us, but it was nothing we've never been through before", Brown said. "Before we left (the team hotel on Thursday), I had a little talk with myself and I just told myself, 'Whatever you do, just make sure you (eliminate) as many mental mistakes as you can'". "It was something we were prepared for".

Kansas had an extra pep to its step, while the Oklahoma State men's basketball team looked like a team which played the previous day.

Brown's driving layup gave the Wildcats the lead, and Robinson tried to answer with a layup with 1.3 seconds to go. But the 60-percent foul shooter missed the first of two free throws, forcing him to miss the second, and the Wildcats corralled the rebound to seal the win.

"Well, I'm biased because they played us better than anybody has all year, twice, and I think they're without question a tournament team", KU coach Bill Self said. When we're bad it's magnified in ways because we don't do the things in grind-it-out games that a lot of teams do.

Mawien finished with 16 points, and Xavier Sneed and Dean Wade scored 12 apiece for the fourth-seeded Wildcats (22-10), who advanced to play Kansas or Oklahoma State in Friday night's semifinals.

Malik Newman with a career-high 30 points paced the Jayhawks.

Wade is averaging 16.5 points and 6.3 rebounds per game. "Just a really good defensive team".

Newman scored 20 first-half points, keeping the No. 9 Jayhawks (25-7) in the game early before they rallied for a one-point halftime edge and then took control with a 14-0 spurt in the second half.

The Horned Frogs relied on its seniors to keep it afloat in overtime as forward Vladimir Brodziansky and guard Kenrich Williams hit on five of their six free throw attempts, which left their matchup with the Wildcats even at 64 with 34.5 seconds remaining. These two split their two meetings this season, but the Mountaineers managed to cover in both games. They looked slow and exhausted in the final minutes but managed to survive overtime because TCU missed a lot of free throws. Shooting 5-for-9 from the field, Wade finished the game with 12 points and three rebounds.

That put the zone effectively under Syrian government control as the remaining strip of territory was within weapons range. There was no confirmation by any of the rebel groups based in eastern Ghouta of negotiations to leave eastern Ghouta.

Kansas State ranks 19th in steals per game (7.8) while Kansas ranks 94th (6.6).

TCU and Kansas State split their regular-season series, each team winning on its home court.

Now, the Horned Frogs wait until Sunday to learn where they play next in the postseason.

With his teammates struggling to get going offensively - as they had the past two months - Young came out simply trying to shoot the Sooners to victory from distance. The Jayhawks are going to the NCAA Tournament for the 47th season. "I'll sleep well this week knowing that if anybody who watched our team play, hard to deny we're a pretty damn good team and worthy of the tournament and can have success against anybody".
