Bane collected the pass and elevated into a buzzer-beating three-pointer that left his fingertips moments before the clock zero, sending TCU and Kansas State into overtime tied at 59.

A big game in the Big 12 Tournament for the Oklahoma State men's basketball team. Tip-off is slated for 6 p.m., on ESPN with Bob Wischusen (play-by-play), Fran Fraschilla (analyst) and Holly Rowe (reporter) set to call the action.

Kansas head coach Bill Self implores his team to play better defense during the second. But getting after 'em a couple times all year.

Kansas State nearly certainly locked up its NCAA Tournament bid with its win over TCU, but the fight the Wildcats showed against Kansas - down their two best players - may have helped their cause.

Although Self said he was not complaining about the result, it was crystal clear, both through his words and those of the Kansas players scattered throughout the KU locker room, that a similar showing on Saturday would not lead to the same result.

Friday marked K-State's eighth consecutive loss to Kansas, and its 10th in 10 meetings in the Big 12 Tournament.

Meanwhile, Kansas owns records of 25-7 SU and 15-14-1 ATS.

You can live stream the game on the WatchESPN app. Kenrich Williams (20 points, 10 rebounds, three steals) was superb for TCU, while Robinson had a solid game (16 points, six assists) despite his late misses at the free-throw line. With AP Photos.Luke Maye scored 17 points, including North Carolina's last field with 5:33 remaining and No. 12 North Carolina held off a late rally by No. 5 Duke to advance to the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament championship game with a 74-69 victory. Oklahoma State dominated the glass and outscored Oklahoma 19-2 in second-chance points.

TCU and Kansas State split their regular-season series, each team winning on its home court.

This one was supposed to be a challenge, though, with Azubuike out with a knee injury.

Coming off a career-high 30-point outing a day earlier, Newman's shooting touch was still locked in Friday as the Jackson, Mississippi product connected on eight of his 14 shots from the field. Kansas covered as a 1.5-point favorite and the game finished with a total of 126 points, which was 21.5 points below the projected point total of 147.5 points. Turnovers: 13 (Graham 3, Vick 3, De Sousa 2, Newman 2, Cunliffe, Garrett, Mykhailiuk).

In place of Azubuike, Kansas started sophomore Mitch Lightfoot and also used freshman Silvio DeSousa in a greater capacity. The Cat's Dean Wade missed Friday's game with an injured.

He was the Yellowjackets coach in 2004 when Georgia Tech and Oklahoma State met in the Final Four in San Antonio.

Texas: The Longhorns (19-13) avoided a potentially crushing loss by gutting out a 68-64 victory over Iowa State in the Big 12 Tournament. Since the inception of the Big 12 Conference, KU is 48-5 against KSU (39-5 in regular-season battles and 9-0 in the Big 12 Championship). K-State's band will follow at 4:30 p.m. Oklahoma has an impressive six Quadrant 1 wins, while Arizona State has three. This season, Kansas State has three separate players who are averaging over 11 points per game.

Double-doubles from Devonte' Graham and Malik Newman, along with some stingy zone defense, propelled the No. 7/7 Kansas Jayhawks past Kansas State, 70-56, January 29 inside Bramlage Coliseum in the 288th edition of the Dillons Sunflower Showdown. Kansas took down Oklahoma State in the first round.

At the end of the year, Oklahoma State won the games it very much needed to.
