OSU Upended By Cyclones, Upend Longhorns
1/10/15 Texas Longhorns @ OSU Cowboys
Le'Bryan Nash and Phil Forte each scored 20 points, a big part of Oklahoma State's win over No. 10 Texas. Anthony Hickey, however, might have been the true star of the 69-58 upset victory. The senior transfer student from LSU scored 10 points with nine rebounds and seven assists to lead the Cowboys.
Nash scored eight points during a two-minute span early in the second half. Forte made back-to-back 3-pointers later during a 12-3 run for Oklahoma State (12-3, 2-1 Big 12). Myles Turner had 18 points, six rebounds and five blocked shots for Texas (12-4, 1-2). The Longhorns have lost two in a row and three of their last five games.
Oklahoma State, in the midst of playing four straight ranked Big 12 teams, limited Texas to just 21-of-61 shooting.
Jeff Newberry's 3-pointer from the top of the key with 7:44 remaining gave Oklahoma State a 53-46 lead. After Texas got within four, Hickey's second-effort put-back and freshman Tavarius Shine's 3-pointer made it 58-50 with 4:13 left.
Texas led 34-30 early in the second half before Nash scored eight straight points for the Cowboys, including a pretty, left-handed layup off the glass that tied it at 36. The Longhorns entered the day ranked third in the nation with 7.4 blocked shots per game, and came up with 12. Turner led the way with five, while Jonathan Holmes had four.
