Oklahoma State pulled out a dramatic overtime win, defeating Kansas State and breaking a three-game skid. In fact, the Pokes had lost five straight conference games dating back to their home upset of Kansas January 19. Their last win was against Auburn in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.
The Cowboys came out hot taking an early 20-8 lead. After allowing Kansas State to climb back in, the Pokes took a 27-22 lead into the half.
Early in the second half, the Wildcats took the lead. Oklahoma State went through a scoring drought of 5:30. But Oklahoma State was able to get stops and almost won in regulation on a Jeff Newberry would-be buzzer beater three that was called back after review.
In overtime, Tavarius Shine came alive, scoring five of the Pokes' six points to push OSU to a 58-55 victory.
Leyton Hammonds led the Pokes with 13 points and Jeff Newberry led in about every other category, pitching in ten points, ten rebounds, five assist and three steals.
The Cowboys go to 12-13 overall and 3-9 in conference play. They have a quick turnaround as they head to Lawrence to take on KU on Monday night at 8:00pm on ESPN.
