Page leads Oklahoma State past Nebraska 53-52

Keiton Page scored 16 points and
Nebraska failed to get off a shot in the final seconds, allowing
Oklahoma State to hold on for a 53-52 victory Wednesday in the
first round of the Big 12 tournament.
Page, who led the Big 12 by shooting 90.2 percent from the foul
line, missed the front end of a 1-and-1 with only seconds left and
Nebraska grabbed the rebound.
But Lance Jeter fell down under the Nebraska basket and the
Cornhuskers could not get off a shot before the buzzer sounded and
sent the Cowboys (19-12) into the second round against top-seeded
and No. 2 Kansas.
Page drilled 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to give the
Cowboys the lead after Nebraska (19-12) had overcome horrific 22.6
percent first-half shooting and taken the lead against an Oklahoma
State team that was almost equally as cold.
