Oklahoma State upsets #1 Baylor, 61-54
Oklahoma State wrapped up its treacherous three-game road trip with top-ranked Baylor. OSU hadn’t beaten the number one ranked team since 2010 while Baylor had a 30-game winning streak against unranked foes.
OSU came out hot and didn’t stop. Bryce Williams hit a jumper and a three to help OSU get started. Williams finished with nine points. but exceeded 1,000 career points in the contest.
Later in the first it was more of the same, Moussa Cissé hit a tough layup and then a big jam as part of his six-point, six-board performance. For Cissé, he scored just two blocks but was a huge presence inside.
MA Moncrieffe also got in on the action as OSU’s lead swelled into double digits.
The half ended with Bryce Thompson getting a big snap on a steal. OSU led by no less than 17 points. The biggest deficit Baylor has had all season.
In the second half, Keylan Boone drilled a three to keep Baylor at arm’s length. He had eight on the bench.
The top-ranked team would not leave. LJ Cryer drilled a pair of three-pointers to cut the lead to under 10. He led the Bears with 18. Matt Meyer drilled a three to bring the Bears within three. He was 16.
But at the end of the transfer, Bryce Thompson made two massive plays. He had a steal that led to two free throws, then finished the game with a slam to help Oklahoma State upset number one ranked Baylor 61-54. It’s the first time Baylor has lost two in a row inside the Ferrell Center in three years.
The Cowboys earn their first victory against the number one team on the road. OSU goes 9-7 on the year and two and three in the conference. OSU gets four days off before heading home to face TCU.
