STILLWATER -- The Cardiac Cowboys have re-earned their nickname.
For a third straight game, No. 22 Oklahoma State won in dramatic fashion, topping Baylor 69-67 in overtime at Gallagher-Iba Arena.
Tied with four seconds left, OSU forward Michael Cobbins had a monster block on A.J. Walton, and Markel Brown drove the length of the floor for the winning layup with .2 seconds remaining.
The Cowboys (16-5, 6-3 Big 12) led by 14 with less than eight minutes left, but a Pierre Jackson-fueled 12-0 run forced late theatrics.
Marcus Smart paced OSU with 14 points, eight rebounds, seven assists, four steals and no turnovers.
