OU edges BU

February 20, 2008


— Tony Crocker converted a four-point play with 7.3 seconds left, and Oklahoma came away with its second straight miraculous finish to beat Baylor, 92-91 in overtime, Tuesday night and gain crucial positioning for its NCAA Tournament hopes.

Crocker was fouled by Aaron Bruce while making a three-pointer from the left wing and then hit his free throw to put Oklahoma ahead late, and Curtis Jerrells missed a pair of free throws with one second left that could've given the Bears the victory.
