  • Gallagher-Iba Arena, Stillwater, OK

FINAL: Naadir Tharpe's floater saves KU in 68-67 double-OT win over Oklahoma State

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.

Between EJ fouling out and the refs, I was a little worried.

Oh, forgot...

Iowa State on the road should be the toughest game left on our schedule. K-state's only hard game should be at home against OK St. OK St still has to play Iowa St and K-State again.

Cshjhawk

UGLY, but a W!

Bill Shaw

Instead of another turnover in the last seconds of a clutch game, we finally get a basket for the win!

Kent Wells in reply to Duane Rice

I hear you on that.

Sam Constance in reply to Kye Clark

No, they'll just switch to saying things like "better lucky than good".

With fans like this, KU doesn't need enemies.

Bob Forer in reply to Windmillgiant

After EJ missed those two crucial free throws?

Lawkan

just need to beat the blizzard home now.

Vajay

I have a man crush on Releford now. What D, what hustle!!!

Duane Rice

I might get to bed about 2:00 this morning. Im not even going to try to go to bed.

Tdscpa in reply to Bwag

But I love her!

Kye Clark in reply to Wissoxfan83

Good deal, make sure we get them called out if they rear their heads in the discussions tomorrow!

Windmillgiant in reply to Bob Forer

Tharpe made one good play in two OTs and it happened to be the last play; so saying we were better off without EJ is a stretch.

Rock Chalk

Someone called it w a win by 1! Good job.

Riverdrifter

A win is a win is a win.

Oklahomajayhawk

A win is a win. We'll take it! And for a Jayhawk who has to live in Oklahoma....thank you guys for the W.

Steve Kubler

I am exhausted!!!

Mark Hopkins

I'm doing back flips in my living room!

Brian Haase

ROCK FREAKIN' CHALK

Mimihawk

Walkin' off with STYLE

Kent Wells

Gutty win

Calbballer

Better lucky than good.

Windmillgiant

Holy Sh*t folks...whew...I have to admit, I was not feeling very confident once the game was tied in regulation. Great win, even it feels a little more like we survived rather than took the game in control.

Wissoxfan83 in reply to Kye Clark

I kept notes, I know who they are!

Danr

I called Tharpe for the game winner a half hour ago... Just for the record

Bwag

That win was as ugly as a painted up 60 year old prostitute

Lawkan

snowing in Arizona?

Bob Forer

That bad fifth foul call on EJ ended up being a blessing in disguise.

Kent Wells

1 basket from the field in 10 minutes.

Jayhawkinatl

F*CK YEAH!!!!!

Kye Clark

Back on the bandwagon all of you who were saying it was game over earlier

fansincewilt

Tharpe pulled one out for the Jayhawks. Way to go Tharpe.

Lindhawk

I'll take it even if a little luck

Brian Powell

Releford had a few clutch plays on both ends. The sweet layups, the charge calls...

Timothy Todd

31 years since OSU sweeps

Jayhawkinmullen

And Tharpe wins it unbelieble.

Wissoxfan83

I feel like doing a back flip

Tonyramp

Withey was being held so bad at the end

Kent Wells in reply to Z00land3r

Brad Swisher

What a play by Ghost. ROCK CHALK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cshjhawk

Duane Rice

He was bound to make one

Z00land3r

Melrank

Melrank

Jesse Newell

Tharpe.

Kent Wells in reply to Lajayhawk

Not any more.

Melrank

The set for Ben to get open sucks.

Duane Rice

fansincewilt

Got to get the ball to Withey somehow.

Jayhawkinmullen

FUn game though.

Lajayhawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Seriously!! How many times can we have the same post?

Sam Constance in reply to Jayhawkinmullen

BS

Sam Constance in reply to Lajayhawk

Agreed. Better to just take the basket whenever it presents itself.

Jayhawkinmullen

OK State deserves this game.

Jhawkdan42

if we win this without scoring a fg in either ot?!?>WOW!

Brian Powell

FG by Ben, we D, win by 1?

MDL/kuae99

Brown is the biggest thug I've seen this year in the B12

Jesse Newell

Definitely not enough time for 2-for-1.

Lajayhawk in reply to Kent Wells

Don't think there's enough time for a 2 for 1.

Lindhawk

Not one field goal in 10 min.

Jesse Newell

Releford needed a Young sell-job on that one.

Brian Powell

they are just making shots and we're not. Pretty simple.

Still waiting on the BMAC attack

Sam Constance

No 2 for 1 this time.

Not enough time

MDL/kuae99

Shooter pushed off

Lajayhawk

Offensive foul on that shot. Crowd would have gone insane if they called it, though.

00:41 left in 2ot
Kansas 66
Okla. St. 67

Jesse Newell

Self calls timeout.

MDL/kuae99

Borderline 2 for 1

Kent Wells

Another jacked up 2 for 1 coming up

Melrank

Are you kidding me?

Jesse Newell

Brown with a tough shot there.

Aircapjay

D!

Lajayhawk

Withey's been HUGE at the line.

01:00 left in 2ot
Kansas 66
Okla. St. 65

Jesse Newell

Withey makes both.

Brian Powell

Steve Nash. No relation.

Windmillgiant

This is where BenMac's game is limited; he can't take over in terms of get the ball and go 1-on-1 and create shots for himself because his ball-handling just isn't that great yet.

Melrank

Withey!

Brian Powell

Bmac needs to get to the rim and make some FTs, if nothing else

Sam Constance

Juryk has been doing that ALL GAME

Jesse Newell

Good eyes by Higgins. Jurick with a dumb play.

Lajayhawk

That actually was a good call.

Kent Wells

This is just freaking stupid.

Lindhawk

No point guard, half a center, no 4 man. This might be selfs best coaching to date

Aircapjay

The arm.

Sam Constance in reply to Jesse Newell

LOLZ

That was an iffy call though...

MDL/kuae99

Ballsy with 4 foul.

fansincewilt

Tharpe is trying. He just can't hit the shot. Great D by Young.
