WACO, Texas (AP) – Le’Bryan Nash scored 22 points and Phil Forte had 16 of his 18 after halftime as No. 21 Oklahoma State rallied for a 74-65 win at No. 16 Baylor on Monday night, the Cowboys’ third consecutive win over a Top 25 team.

It’s the first time Oklahoma State (17-7, 7-5 Big 12) has won three straight games against ranked teams during a regular season.

Taurean Prince had 20 points for Baylor (18-6, 6-5), which had won three conference games in a row by at least 18 points since a 64-53 loss at Oklahoma State only two weeks ago. Rico Gathers had 16 points and 16 rebounds for the Bears, his fourth consecutive game with at least 15 rebounds.

Forte had a short floater with 8:24 left to put the Cowboys up 58-47 before Baylor scored eight straight points, getting within 58-55 on a jumper by Prince.
