NORMAN, Okla. - Caleb Grill scored 20 points and No. 25 Iowa State held on to beat Oklahoma 63-60.

Osun Osunniyi added 12 points and eight rebounds for the Cyclones (11-2, 2-0 Big 12).

Jalen Hill scored 16 and Tanner Groves had 15 points and eight rebounds for the Sooners (9-5, 0-2). Oklahoma was coming off a 70-69 home loss to No. 6 Texas.

Oklahoma's Grant Sherfield, who was averaging 18.3 points per game, finished with four on 1-for-7 shooting.

Iowa State led 61-60 late but turned the ball over on an inbounds pass with 7.5 seconds remaining. Oklahoma turned it right back over with 6.5 seconds to play. Osunniyi hit two free throws with 5.4 seconds left to make it 63-60, and Groves missed an off-balance 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Iowa State made nine of its first 14 field goal attempts and jumped out to a 22-5 advantage in the first 7 1/2 minutes.

Oklahoma rallied, and a 3-pointer by Bijan Cortes tied the game at 25. Hill's baseline jumper gave the Sooners a 27-25 lead with about three minutes remaining in the first half. It was the final basket of a 20-0 run that lasted more than nine minutes.

Oklahoma went the entire stretch with Sherfield on the bench. The score was tied 29-all at the break, and the game was close throughout the second half.

BIG PICTURE

Iowa State: The Cyclones refocused after squandering their big first-half lead. They made nine of 11 free throws in the second half to help seal the win.

Oklahoma: The Sooners hung tough despite Sherfield's off night. He had scored in double figures the first 13 games this season.
