Oklahoma State 65, Texas 64

STILLWATER, Okla. -- Tavarius Shine's rebound tip-in with six seconds remaining lifted Oklahoma State to a dramatic 65-64 comeback victory over Texas.

Oklahoma State outscored Texas 15-2 over the final 5:39 to pull out the unlikely triumph.

Jeffrey Carroll scored 17 points and Brandon Averette had 11 points in his first start of the season for the Cowboys (12-5, 2-3 Big 12).

Eric Davis Jr. scored 18 points, while Dylan Osetowski had 12 points and nine rebounds for Texas (11-6, 2-3).

Texas appeared to be in control of the game throughout the second half, maintaining a double-digit lead for most of it until the late Oklahoma State surge.

The Longhorns went up 62-50 when Matt Coleman knocked down a free throw with 5:55 remaining, but the Cowboys responded with a crucial 13-0 run over the next three minutes. When Shine sank a long jump shot from the right baseline with 3:12 to go, it put OSU ahead 63-62, their first lead since early in the first half.

Osetowski's layup with 1:50 to go put Texas back on top until Shine's late game-winning bucket.
