NORMAN — With 10 minutes to play, Willie Warren had the same number of turnovers, seven, as the entire Oklahoma State team.
With 10 seconds left, Tommy Mason-Griffin missed a pair of free throws that left the door open for the Cowboys to send the game into overtime.
After OSU’s Ray Penn obliged with a wide-open trey, Warren and Mason-Griffin redeemed themselves. They produced big plays in the extra period to give the Sooners a 62-57 win on Monday night in front of 10,262 fans, easily the loudest crowd of the men’s basketball season in Lloyd Noble Center.
Down two points, Mason-Griffin drained a 3-pointer from the top of the key to take the lead with just under three minutes in overtime. Warren then drove and dished to Tiny Gallon for an easy layup to put the Sooners up three points with under a minute to play.
"It’s huge,” Mason-Griffin said of the win. "It’s the biggest game because it’s right here and now.”
Oklahoma State’s Marshall Moses scored on a jump hook on the Cowboys’ first possession of overtime.
