Spare Oklahoma State basketball coach Travis Ford any talk about this being a down year in the Big 12. This might not be the time to share the opinion the Big 12 schedule is easier this year than most. By Tom Keegan
Bill Self, who gave out a batch of handshakes and hugs and executed a fist pump or two after Kansas University’s double-overtime victory over Oklahoma State on Wednesday, admits he was more animated than usual on a snowy night at his alma mater. By Gary Bedore
The superstars ordained as NBA players before they step foot on a college campus dominate headlines and mock drafts, but there still is a place for seniors in college basketball. And that place late Wednesday night was Gallagher-Iba Arena. By Tom Keegan• Box score
Naadir Tharpe hit a floater with 18 seconds left in double-overtime to give Kansas a one-point lead, and Oklahoma State guard Markel Brown missed a 19-footer with 10 seconds left before Travis Releford tipped the ball forward to run out the time in KU's 68-67 double-overtime victory over OSU on Wednesday night at Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater, Okla.
Tharpe's jumper was KU's only field goal made in the two overtimes.
Travis Releford led KU with 18 points on 7-for-10 shooting, while Jeff Withey added 17 points, 14 rebounds and four blocks.
KU (22-4, 10-3 Big 12) moves into a tie for first place in the Big 12 with Kansas State.
The Jayhawks will play host to the TCU Horned Frogs at 3 p.m. Saturday.
