NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Juwan Evans scored 24 points, got a key steal late and Oklahoma State rallied in the final minute to beat Oklahoma 68-66 on Monday night for the Cowboys’ first win in Norman since 2004.
It snapped Oklahoma State’s 12-game losing streak at OU.
With Oklahoma up 66-63, Oklahoma State’s Mitchell Solomon made two free throws with 24.1 seconds left, then Evans’s steal led to a 3-pointer by Phil Forte with 11 seconds remaining that put the Cowboys up 68-66. Jeffrey Carroll blocked Kameron McGusty’s 3-pointer in the closing seconds that would have won it for Oklahoma.
Forte and Lindy Waters each scored 11 points for Oklahoma State (14-8, 3-6 Big 12), which won its fourth straight.
McGusty, a freshman, scored a season-high 22 points for the Sooners (8-13, 2-7), who has lost four in a row.
Oklahoma led 36-35 at halftime behind 13 points from McGusty.
