s Sutton wins 700th

February 21, 2002


— Victor Williams had 20 points and seven assists to lead No. 13 Oklahoma State over Texas, 85-80, on Wednesday as Eddie Sutton became the 14th Div. I coach to win 700 games.

Sutton, who has worked at Creighton, Arkansas, Kentucky and Oklahoma State, is 700-275 in his 32 seasons as a head coach.

"It means I've been coaching a long time," he said. "We've had a tough time beating the Longhorns. It was a special game and one I'll always remember."

The Cowboys (21-6, 8-5) moved into a tie for third place in the Big 12 with Texas (17-9, 8-5), which has lost four of its last five conference games.

Texas cut what had been a 13-point Oklahoma State lead to 57-55 on a three-point play by Brandon Mouton with 8:14 to play.

Texas Tech 91, Missouri 68

Lubbock, Texas  Andre Emmett scored 26 points and Andy Ellis had a double-double as Texas Tech defeated Missouri. The victory pushed the Red Raiders (19-6, 8-5 Big 12) into a three-way tie for third place with Texas and Oklahoma State. MU (18-9, 7-6) is in sixth.

Kansas State 66, Colorado 64

Manhattan  Pervis Pasco scored 18 points and Nick Williams added 14 as K-State beat Colorado.

Matt Siebrandt hit a free throw with 12 seconds remaining, and Blair Wilson's last-second three-point shot fell short to give Kansas State its first win over Colorado since 1999.

Kansas State (11-13, 5-8 Big 12) has won five of its last six at home, while Colorado (13-11, 4-9) is 0-7 in conference road games.

Nebraska 82, Texas A&M; 72

College Station, Texas  Brennon Clemmons came off the bench and scored 23 points to lead Nebraska to its first Big 12 victory on the road this season.
