MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Markel Browns streak of eight straight games scor

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Markel Browns streak of eight straight games scoring in double figures for Oklahoma State was in jeopardy -- until he hit his final shot. Brown made a 3-pointer with 12 seconds to lift the 11th-ranked Cowboys to a 73-72 win over West Virginia on Saturday. Oklahoma State (14-2, 2-1 Big 12) trailed for most of the game, but got solid efforts from its top two scorers in the final minutes. "Proud of our team for just hanging in there," Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford said. "There was moments where it could have got away from us, but we just kept hanging in there and then we made a few big plays. And obviously Markel hit a really big shot." The game featured four of the top six scorers in the Big 12. Marcus Smart and Brown again came out on top over the Mountaineers duo of Eron Harris and Juwan Staten after a Cowboys season sweep a year ago. Despite some foul trouble, Smart had 22 points and 13 rebounds to give him two straight double-doubles. He had none before a win over Texas on Wednesday. Brown finished with 12 points. Staten finished with 20 points, but missed a pair of layups in the final 30 seconds. Harris, the leagues second-best scorer, was held to 11 points, more than seven below his average. Harris made just 3 of 11 shots. "He didnt play very well," West Virginia coach Bob Huggins said. "Im telling him every day, you have to work." West Virginias Terry Henderson scored a season-high 21 points, including a 3-pointer that put the Mountaineers ahead 72-70 with 1:14 remaining. Freshman Nathan Adrian, whos been mired in a shooting slump, sent the home crowd into a frenzy with a block of LeBryan Nashs shot attempt with 1:04 to go and West Virginia got the ball back on the tie-up. But Staten missed a layup with 27 seconds left, Brown got the rebound and Oklahoma State called timeout. Once play resumed, Smart found Brown at the top left side of the circle. "We were actually trying to feel out a shot, but when Marcus came off, everybody crashed on him, and like once before in the game he kicked it to me," Brown said. "I was open, I got a defender off his feet and I made the shot." Ford recalled that Brown had failed to take a wide-open 3-pointer on another possession about 30 seconds earlier. "Right when he did, I told him dont pass up another shot," Ford said. "And it just so happened he got another look." Staten missed another layup in traffic in the closing seconds. But Huggins was quick to come to his defence. "Juwans trying to win games," Huggins said. "I wish everyone else would follow suit sometimes. He has worked his tail off, he studies (and) he doesnt take practices off. I wish everyone else would do the same thing. He set a great example." Nash finished with 18 points. Devin Williams had 12 points and 13 rebounds for West Virginia, (10-6, 2-1), which saw its three-game winning streak snapped. Oklahoma State gave up a season high for points in the first half for the third straight game, but took advantage of a pair of West Virginia turnovers and went on an 8-2 run to open the second half for its first lead 47-43 with 16:22 left. Smart went to the bench with his third foul with 12:04 left, and the Cowboys did just fine without him. Oklahoma State went on a 7-0 run, with Brown stealing a pass from Brandon Watkins and dunking the ball uncontested for a 57-52 lead with 10:24 left. Smart returned from the sideline after three minutes and kept the Cowboys momentum going with a pair of free throws and a 3-pointer. West Virginia attempted just two free throws during its first-half run, but started getting free throws midway through the second half. The Mountaineers needed them because they made just one field goal over a 10-minute stretch after halftime. Henderson broke the drought with a 3-pointer and Staten made a layup 32 seconds later to tie the score at 67-67 with 4:21 left. Each team made two field goals the rest of the game in a physical finish. West Virginia set the tempo from the onset, leading by as many as eight in the first half before Oklahoma State got its act together with a 15-4 run to tie it. Williams turnaround jumper with 2 seconds left put West Virginia ahead 41-39 at halftime. Bruce Ellington 49ers Jersey .

Haas said he "felt a lot of pain" in his right shoulder when he slammed his racket to the ground in frustration after losing his serve at 3-3 in the first set.The Indiana Pacers remain on top of the TSN.ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the usual suspects, the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. With eight wins in the past nine games, the Pacers have displayed their outstanding defence, allowing 82 or fewer points in five of those eight wins. Its been a while since the last update (due in part to holidays and technical issues with a location move), so there have been some dramatic moves, highlighted by the Toronto Raptors vaulting from 28 all the way up to 10. That the Raptors have gone 10-5 in the past 15 games, with entirely respectable losses at Miami and Indiana most recently, is one thing, but the softness of the teams below the top tier is what makes it possible for such a huge move up the list. Suddenly, though, a season that had talk about lottery picks and Andrew Wiggins iis steering in the direction of a playoff spot, and possibly homecourt advantage in the first round.dddddddddddd Other teams moving up include the New Orleans Pelicans, with a healthy Anthony Davis, going from 16 to 11 and, also getting healthier, the Washington Wizards are up from 17 to 12. The Sacramento Kings, with solid play from small forward Rudy Gay move from 26 to 20. Heading the other direction, the Los Angeles Clippers drop from six to 13, due largely to Chris Pauls shoulder injury. The Detroit Pistons have lost seven of eight and fall from 15 to 22; the injury-ravaged Los Angeles Lakers have lost eight of nine games and sink from 18 to 23 while the Orlando Magic have lost seven of nine, as well as starting centre Nikola Vucevic, and land at 29, from 19 in the previous update.
