KANSAS CITY, Mo. —
Oklahoma State still led 55-43 with under 6 minutes remaining when the Bears put together one last charge. Jefferson's bucket and a 3-pointer by Brown started it, and a series of foul shots by Jefferson and Jackson helped Baylor get within 59-55 at the final media timeout.
The teams started trading blows — quite literally — down the stretch, and a parade of free throws ensued. At one point, the Bears went to the line on three straight offensive possessions, and the teams combined to shoot 62 foul shots in the game.
