BIG 12 MEN'S BB: Cardiac Cowboys clip Baylor in OT


STILLWATER — Neither team was able to finish on the offensive end in the closing minute — something of a theme for the entire game with OSU shooting 36.1 percent from the field and Baylor going 41.9 percent. And in the final seconds, it was Oklahoma State’s defense making the play of the night to clinch the victory.

With Baylor’s A.J. Walton attacking the baseline, redshirt sophomore forward Michael Cobbins got his second block of night and got the ball out to a leaking Markel Brown.

“I thought that we had come too far to give up a layup there at the end and put them up by two with the clock ticking down. I just tried to go up and get it and thank God I got it,” Cobbins said.

The junior guard and most veteran Cowboy scored the game-winning bucket on a layup with 0.2 seconds showing on the clock.

“I wasn’t even thinking about (the time remaining), I took two glances at it and it had five seconds left, so I was just trying to beat the clock as fast as I can,” Brown said.

The bucket gave Brown 13 points on the night thanks to a rough 4-for-17 shooting performance. He also went 0 for 6 from 3-point range, while the Cowboys as a whole made just 3 of 21 shots from long range for 14.3 percent.

The shooting struggles weren’t limited to just Brown. Smart also had an off night following Saturday’s big upset of then No. 1-ranked Kansas in Lawrence, Kan.

OSU’s freshman point guard went 4 for 21 (29 percent) from the field and 1 for 5 from behind the arc. But Smart still finished with a team-high 14 points, as well as team highs in assists (7) and steals (4), while forcing Baylor’s point guard to turn the ball over 11 times.

“I’m used to it,” Ford said. “That’s just what he does. … That’s what makes him good, is he’s such a competitor.”
