Baylor Vs. Oklahoma State Final Score: Bears Hold Off Cowboys 64-60

The Baylor Bears improved to 21-2 on the year as they defeated the Oklahoma St. Cowboys 64-60. This game was closer than expected against Oklahoma State who has been hovering around .500 this year. Oklahoma State was led by freshman guard Brian Williams who scored a career-high 23 points, but it was not enough to pull of the upset.

Baylor struggled shooting the ball on Saturday afternoon and particularly from the three-point line as they made 4 of 19 and Oklahoma State was marginally better as they made 6 of 19. At the end of the first half Baylor seemed to find their way with an eight point lead, but Oklahoma State started the second half on a 10-2 run to tie the game at 39 apiece.

Baylor then responded with their own run of nine straight points to go up 48-39 and never relinquished that lead. Oklahoma State made it interesting making it a one-point game with 1:46 left, but Baylor made their free throws the rest of the way and outscored Oklahoma State eight to three the rest of the way to secure victory.

Pierre Jackson and Perry Jones III led Baylor in scoring with 16 points each.
