STILLWATER — Oklahoma State’s Terrel Harris took a basketball game that was a disinteresting Missouri blowout and made it extremely intense the last three minutes on Wednesday. The Tigers, who ended up winning 97-95, led by as many as 20 points in the middle of the second half. But OSU chipped away at the lead, and with under three minutes to play, Harris stripped the ball from Marcus Denmon, raced down the court for the dunk and was intentionally fouled by Denmon. After OSU inbounded, Harris tipped in an Obi Muonelo miss. That cut Missouri’s lead to 94-89 with 2:44 to play, at a point when about half of the 8,514 people who attended the game had already left the building. "When they got that four-point play, it was like a six-point swing,” Missouri’s Zaire Taylor said. "When I seen how pumped up he was and how he got pumped and the crowd got pumped, the momentum shifted right there.” OSU point guard Byron Eaton said: "When Terrel got that dunk and hit the two free throws that gave us a spurt we needed ... we knew then we could definitely get back in the game.” The rest of the game was a thriller, but in the end, it was OSU’s second heartbreaking loss in a row. OSU lost in overtime at Baylor on Saturday. OSU coach Travis Ford said afterward that he was extremely disappointed with his team’s performance the first 35 minutes of the game. "For 35 minutes, they really dominated us on the glass, field goal percentage, everything,” Ford said. "We were pretty much dominated for 35 minutes.” Defensively, OSU was a mess most of the game, giving up what Ford called "an extraordinary amount of easy shots.” While most of the game was bad for OSU fans, the last five minutes were thrilling for those who stayed. OSU forced several turnovers, and Byron Eaton hit four critical free throws in the last two minutes to put OSU in position to win the game in the last minute. But with about seven seconds left and the Cowboys trailing by two, Missouri’s DeMarre Carroll blocked a Muonelo 3-point attempt. The ball went out of bounds off Missouri, and OSU’s last shot was an Eaton jumper from about seven feet that rattled around the rim and failed to drop. Carroll said the block redeemed him for the two late turnovers he committed. "I knew if I didn’t make that block, I knew everyone was going to look at me,” Carroll said. "Toward the end, we kinda panicked a little bit, but we were able to pull it out.” Muonelo led OSU with 22 points and 12 rebounds. Harris finished with 21 points. Carroll and Matt Lawrence had 19 apiece for Missouri.
