MANHATTAN, Kan.   — Kendra Suttles scored 11 straight points in the second half, her only points of the game, to spur No. 15 Oklahoma State to a 58-51 victory over Kansas State on Wednesday night.

The Cowgirls (13-1, 2-1 Big 12) trailed by one with 11:44 left when Suttles went on her scoring run with four field goals and three free throws that left Oklahoma State up 45-35 with 8:01 left.

The Cowgirls stretched the lead to as many as 14 with 2:59 left. Ashia Woods’ basket got the Wildcats (6-8, 0-3) back within seven with 59 seconds left but the teams only scored two points apiece the rest of the way.

Tiffany Bias also scored 11 points and Brittney Martin 10 for OSU, which bounced back from its first loss, a 71-67 defeat against West Virginia.

Ashia Woods scored 17 points K-State.

The win was Oklahoma State’s first in Manhattan since 2007.

Texas 79, OU 74, OT

AUSTIN, Texas — Oklahoma’s Aaryn Ellenberg had a career-high 37 points but the Sooners blew a 12-point halftime lead and lost to Texas 79-74 in overtime Wednesday.

It was the Sooners’ second straight overtime loss after falling to Iowa State 82-75 in Norman on Sunday.

Ellenberg had 22 points in the first period and Morgan Hook drilled a halfcourt buzzer-beater to make it seem as though everything was going OU's way at intermission.

OU led 38-26 at halftime. Texas pulled within one four times but couldn’t crack the Sooners’ lead until GiGi Mazionyte nailed a 3 from the left wing with 31.7 seconds to play to tie the game 68-68.

The Sooners turned the ball over 16 times in the second half.

Attendance at the matinee affair at the  Frank Erwin Center was 6,111, which included more than 5,000 Central Texas elementary school children who attended the game as part of a field trip to the University of Texas Austin Campus.
