No. 21 Baylor 98, Oklahoma St. 92 (OT)
Waco, Texas — Coming back once wasn’t good enough for Baylor. The Bears had to do it again, then still needed more time.
Tweety Carter hit two three-pointers to start overtime and finally put Baylor ahead to stay in a victory over Oklahoma State that was filled with wild swings.

Down by 17 points in the first half, Baylor recovered to go up by eight soon after halftime only to fall behind again by seven. The Bears (14-3, 2-1 Big 12) then needed a late 12-1 run just to be in position to force overtime.
Obi Muonelo led the Cowboys (12-4, 1-1) with 21 points.
Curtis Jerrells led the Bears with 31 points and 10 assists, but missed a chance to win the game in regulation when he made only one free throw with 2.5 seconds left.
Carter, who had three points while playing 32 minutes in regulation, broke the 82-all tie 12 seconds into overtime. He hit another three on the Bears’ next possession.
