    Cowboys hold off Cornhuskers in Big 12 first round

    Associated Press

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Keiton Page scored 16 points and Nebraska failed to get off a shot in the final seconds, allowing Oklahoma State to hold on for a 53-52 victory Wednesday in the first round of the Big 12 tournament.

    Page, who led the Big 12 by shooting 90.2 percent from the foul line, missed the front end of a one-and-one with only seconds left and Nebraska grabbed the rebound.

    But Lance Jeter fell down under the Nebraska basket and the Cornhuskers could not get off a shot before the buzzer sounded and sent the Cowboys (19-12) into the second round against top-seeded and No. 2 Kansas.

    Page drilled 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to give the Cowboys the lead after Nebraska (19-12) had overcome horrific 22.6 percent first-half shooting and taken the lead against an Oklahoma State team that was almost equally as cold.
