'Pokes win OT thriller over Sooners


STILLWATER — As for the fellow former high school All-American, Nash took a half to finally get going, but did so at the right time for Oklahoma State (19-5, 9-3).

After scoring just 3 points in the first 20 minutes — largely due to playing just 9 minutes because of foul trouble — the sophomore from Dallas went on a tear after halftime, scoring 23 points in the final 25 minutes. He was also the catalyst in overtime, scoring 7 of the 11 points put up by OSU in the extra frame.

“I thought he was very aggressive around the rim,” Ford said. “... It’s just a mentality for him. He got in a little bit of foul trouble, but when LB is locked in, he’s not bad.”

Oklahoma State got double-digit scoring from junior guard Markel Brown, who put up 14 points despite a 5-for-13 shooting night — which included a 1-for-5 performance from behind the arc. Freshman guard Phil Forte also scored 10 points in the victory, which saw the sellout crowd storm the court.

“The crowd was huge, it made a difference for us. The crowd and the atmosphere was a difference maker for us — especially in a game like this where I didn’t think we were playing great,” Ford said. “You need that extra and they gave us that extra tonight. It was exciting.”

The Cowboys, riding a seven-game win streak, could use the same type of atmosphere Wednesday when No. 15-ranked Kansas comes to town for a game that will have Big 12 Conference title implications.

Tipoff against the Jayhawks will be 8 p.m. from Gallagher-Iba Arena.

“We gave the crowd a lot to look forward to, we’re on a nice win streak and we have a big game coming up this week against Kansas,” Brown said. “We can use their help any time of the day. We look forward to them being there.”
