STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma State fought like crazy to get new coach Mike Boynton his first Big 12 win.

Jeffrey Carroll scored 24 points and Kendall Smith added a season-high 20 to help Oklahoma State defeat Iowa State 96-87 in overtime on Saturday.

Oklahoma State rallied from an eight-point deficit with 3:32 left in regulation. The victory came after a 20-point loss to Oklahoma on Wednesday.

“It was a huge bounce back game for a lot of guys,” Boynton said. “We got our tails kicked the other day, and for us to bounce back from a pretty embarrassing loss — I’m really proud of the guys. That was pretty cool to see.”

Tavarius Shine scored 15 points and Mitchell Solomon added 14 points and nine rebounds for Oklahoma State (11-4, 1-2 Big 12), which snapped Iowa State’s 10-game win streak in the series.

Cameron McGriff’s layup with 46 seconds remaining in overtime put the Cowboys up four, and they held the Cyclones scoreless the rest of the way.

Donovan Jackson scored a career-high 30 points for Iowa State (9-5, 0-3).

“Disappointed for our guys,” Iowa State coach Steve Prohm said. “It stinks right now. It’s hard, but hopefully, it will help us down the road.

“We scored plenty enough points to win the game. We were hot and cold on defense, and you can’t do that and win on the road.”

Oklahoma State held Iowa State scoreless for the first four minutes of the second half to take a 40-34 lead, but the Cyclones bounced back again.

Iowa State’s Hans Brase made a layup with 52 seconds remaining in regulation to give the Cyclones a 78-77 lead. After Jackson made one of two free throws to put Iowa State up two, Smith tied the game at 79 on a short jumper with 5 seconds left to force overtime.

Oklahoma State outscored Iowa State 17-8 in the extra period. It was an especially tough loss for Iowa State, which fell 74-70 to Texas in overtime on Jan. 1.

“It comes down to we’ve got to make big plays offensively and defensively, and two games in a row, we didn’t do that,” Jackson said.

The Cyclones will play at No. 10 Kansas on Tuesday.
