Big 12 Tournament Bracket Update 2011: Kansas Squeaks By Oklahoma State, 63-62

The Kansas Jayhawks are the No. 1 seed in the Big 12 Tournament, but they escaped an Oklahoma St. Cowboys upset with a 63-62 victory. Oklahoma State's Jean-Paul Olukemi got off a bad shot with one second left on the clock to keep his team from advancing to the semifinals.

Marcus Morris, the Big 12 Player of the Year, led Kansas with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Nine of the 11 came on the offensive glass. His brother, Markieff, added 10 points and five boards. The bench added 18 points, though Oklahoma State's Olukemi nearly outscored them with his own 17 points off the bench. Kansas' Thomas Robinson grabbed eight boards coming off the bench.

Overall, it was a tough day shooting for both teams. The Cowboys came out ahead with 40 percent from the field, while the Jayhawks managed only 35.9 percent. State's Keiton page shot 6-of-12 from the field and 9-of-9 from the free throw line for a game-high 23 points. Matt Pilgrim pulled down 10 boards for the Cowboys.
