State beats TCU 66 - 64 in OT at Big 12 Championship Quarterfinal

March Madness: Kansas wins ultra-deep Big 12 tournament. Now what's next for the conference in March?

March Madness: Kansas wins ultra-deep Big 12 tournament. Now what's next for the conference in March?

In the Big 12 Tournament in Kansas City, Mo., 14-time regular-season champion Kansas is the No. 1 seed.

Graham offered, "I think it's just hard to beat a team three times, you know", and, "At the end of the day, they did play yesterday, so I think fatigue had a little bit to do with it", and, "You know, we didn't want to lose again, so we just tried to do everything in our power". Oklahoma State went 8-10 in Big 12 competition and entered Wednesday's action 89th in the RPI, thanks in part to a weak nonconference schedule. "We'll worry about what next week brings next week".

"I just told myself that we can't lose". Trae Young tried to rally the Sooners, making the tough reverse layup to make it a 6-point game.

A big reason for that was the eight-minute stretch, from 14:58 to 7:03, in which the Cowboys failed to score a single point. Coach Bill Self said they played better in the 2nd half. Kansas came out with a much more aggressive mentality on both ends of the floor, and the Cowboys hit a scoring drought of nearly 8 minutes in the second half that made the difference.

Oklahoma will now await its destiny and see if it will play in the NCAA tournament. "But instead of taking care of business, we left it in [the committee's] hands". "I thought they played smarter than us. It's a great conference, and I think people are recognizing it more and more".

If Duke knocks off North Carolina and Virginia on its way to the ACC crown, and Kansas falls in the Big 12 tournament final, an intriguing discussion could occur.

Kansas State kept the momentum going, edging ahead 59-56 when TCU's J.D. Miller was called for basket interference with 52.3 seconds left. If passed over for the NCAA Tournament, hosting a first-round NIT game seems like a realistic possibility. But a Mykhailiuk offensive rebound and put-back just before the halftime buzzer gave the Jayhawks a one-point edge, 43-42, as the teams headed to the locker room. From that point, the Cowboys went cold and went almost eight minutes without scoring.

"He was definitely a spark", the Cowboys' Mitchell Solomon said. Though Virginia plays at one of the nation's slowest pace, it has a highly efficient offense with each of the squad's top three scorers shooting over 38 percent from 3-point range. Oklahoma State dominated the glass and outscored Oklahoma 19-2 in second-chance points.

OSU junior Tavarius Shine agreed.

Boynton said. "First time ever". "They fought a lot of noise all season and to be playing this way at this point in the season shows a lot of character". Texas State has been poor at defending the paint, but superb at closing off the 3-point line. The victor of that game will meet the victor of Kansas's quarterfinal game on Thursday. The Cowboys were 11 of 26 from beyond the arc, improving to 16-2 when they make at least nine 3s. Rashard Odomes had 12 points, but starter Kameron McGusty was held to six on 2-for-9 shooting and forward Khadeem Lattin had two points and four boards.

The fourth-seeded Wildcats (23-10) learned Friday morning they'd be without All-Big 12 forward Dean Wade, who hurt his foot in their quarterfinal win over TCU.
