Kansas beats Oklahoma State in double overtime By Rustin Dodd
The classic ended in a flash.
Naadir Tharpe moved to his left, and then faked back the other way, a little wiggle that created just enough space. For nearly 50 minutes, the Kansas Jayhawks and Oklahoma State Cowboys had played a Big 12 classic, a back-and-forth battle that stretched deep into the second overtime.
And with Kansas trailing by one, Tharpe, who hadn’t even been in the game until senior Elijah Johnson fouled out, took the game into his own hands. The little floater dropped through the net, the Jayhawks came up with a frantic stop on the other end, and Bill Self pumped his fist as the clock struck 0:00.
Kansas 68, Oklahoma State 67.
Somehow, someway, the Jayhawks had escaped Gallagher-Iba Arena with a statement victory. The ninth-ranked Jayhawks, 22-4 and 10-3 in the Big 12, climbed even with Kansas State atop the conference, and gained a measure of revenge after dropping a rare home game to No. 14 Oklahoma State (19-6, 9-4) earlier this month.
In a season where they’ve said the Big 12 was down, the conference delivered a red epic between two top-25 teams.
Enough drama for you?
The Jayhawks had a golden chance to win in the first overtime, but senior Travis Releford couldn’t convert on a drive to the basket.
Lakers Beat Celtics 113-99 on Emotional Night
Dwight Howard had 24 points and 12 rebounds in helping the Los Angeles Lakers to an emotional 113-99 victory over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night in their first game since the death of owner Jerry Buss.
Kobe Bryant added 16 points, Steve Nash and Earl Clark had 14 apiece, and Metta World Peace 12 in a game that surely would have delighted Buss, who always loved to win but especially liked beating the Celtics.
The Lakers won their most recent NBA championship — and last under Buss — in 2010, defeating the Celtics 4-3 in the finals. Buss died Monday at 80 after an 18-month strle with cancer that had forced him to watch his team's games on TV or an iPad instead of from his suite above the Staples Center court.
Paul Pierce scored 26 points for the Celtics, who fell to 8-17 on the road and lost their third in a row away from home. Courtney Lee added 20 points and Kevin Garnett had 12 on 6-of-14 shooting.

Howard's performance in the Lakers' first game since the All-Star break came on the eve of the NBA trade deadline. He has been the subject of rumors, but general manager Mitch Kupchak said this week that Howard wouldn't be going anywhere.
He was among seven Lakers in double figures on a night when they shot 51 percent, dominated the paint 54-30 and were 22 of 31 from the free throw line for one of the most complete games they've played in months.
