Cowboys squeak out triumph over Baylor

Posted: Wednesday, January 22, 2003

WACO, Texas -- Tony Allen scored 17 points, the last by converting a three-point play with 38.6 seconds left in overtime, and 13th-ranked Oklahoma State held off Baylor 67-64 Tuesday night to extend the nation's longest winning streak to 13 games.

The Cowboys (15-1, 4-0 Big 12) blew a 10-point lead in the second half but managed to pull out the win after Allen took a pass from Melvin Sanders and made a nifty move along the baseline for the go-ahead basket. He added the free throw to make it 66-64.

No. 14 Indiana 69, Ohio State 51

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Relying on tough defense and 15 points from Marshall Strickland, Indiana beat Ohio State to earn a split in the season series.

The Hoosiers (14-3, 4-1 Big Ten) won their third straight game, all without leading scorer Bracey Wright, and their 10th in a row at home. Wright sat out because of a nerve injury in his back.

No. 16 Notre Dame 71, Providence 65

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Chris Thomas scored 23 points and Matt Carroll had 21 as Notre Dame won on the road for the first time this season.

The Fighting Irish (15-3, 3-1) had played on another team's court only twice this season, losses to Pittsburgh and Kentucky. Notre Dame struggled with most of its offense against Providence (9-7, 2-3), except at the free-throw line where it went 21-for-25, including 10-for-13 over the final 5:04.

No. 21 Missouri 64, Iowa St. 59

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Ricky Clemons, coming off a one-game suspension, found his scoring touch just in time to lead a late spurt as Missouri beat Iowa State.

Clemons, a junior point guard who leads the Tigers with a 17-point average, was reinstated Monday after being charged with choking a 20-year-old woman last week. He shot 5-for-19 and missed a handful of wild layup attempts.

Mississippi 76, No. 15 Alabama 57

OXFORD, Miss. -- Aaron Harper scored a career-high 28 points to lead Mississippi over Alabama, the third straight season the Crimson Tide have been blown out at Tad Smith Coliseum.

Alabama (12-4, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) couldn't overcome off nights by both of its stars. Reigning SEC player of the year Erwin Dudley scored 13 points, and leading scorer Maurice Williams had another poor showing in his home state with nine points on 4-of-11 shooting.


No. 13 Penn State 81, Old Dominion 74

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Kelly Mazzante scored a season-high 38 points as No. 13 Penn State beat Old Dominion 81-74 Tuesday night.

Tanisha Wright added 16 points and Jess Brungo 12 for Penn State (15-4), which led by 21 with 15:42 left and withstood a 25-9 Old Dominion run to hold on.

Kim Giddens had a season-high 28 points to lead the Lady Monarchs (8-6), who were 17-for-22 from the floor in the second half and shot nearly 61 percent for the game.

Mazzante scored 26 points in the first half of her 20th career 30-point game, and finished with her highest total of the season. She was 12-for-12 from the free-throw line, one shy of the school's single-game record.
