AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – Phil Forte made two free throws with 2.1 seconds left in overtime, sending Oklahoma State to a 65-63 victory over No. 25 Texas on Wednesday night, the Longhorns’ fourth loss in a row.

Le’Bryan Nash scored 17 points for the Cowboys (15-7, 5-5 Big 12), who led most of the game, only to see Texas rally in the final minute of regulation to tie.

Isaiah Taylor scored 18 points for Texas (14-8, 3-6). He had final six points in regulation.

Forte, an 85-percent free-throw shooter on the season had a big miss late in regulation, but calmly made his last shots for the win.

Texas’ Connor Lammert tied it at 63 when he made one of 2 with 11.6 seconds left.

Texas had a final chance to win, but Taylor’s long, running 3-pointer at the buzzer bounced off the side of the rim.
