Mario Boggan set career highs with 37 points and 20 rebounds and hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds left in the third overtime to lift No. 12 Oklahoma State to a 105-103 victory over No. 21 Texas in this 2007 instant classic at Gallagher-Iba Arena.
Kevin Durant, the Big 12's leading scorer and rebounder, put Texas on top with a three-point play with 10.5 seconds left, but there was still time for Boggan.
He took the ensuing inbounds pass near midcourt and fought through defenders to launch a 3 from the left wing. He fell to the floor and was joined by celebrating teammates after Texas' A.J. Abrams was called for traveling with 0.2 seconds left to clinch the win for the Cowboys.
JamesOn Curry added 28 points and nine rebounds, Terrel Harris scored 16 points and Byron Eaton had 11 for Oklahoma State (16-2, 2-1 Big 12), which also won a double-overtime game against Pittsburgh earlier this season.
Durant, a freshman, tied his career best with 37 points and had 12 rebounds for the Longhorns (13-4, 3-1). D.J. Augustin added 19 points, Justin Mason had 18, Abrams 13 and Damion James had 10 points and 11 rebounds.
Fans rushed the court after the game finally ended - a rare sight at Gallagher-Iba Arena, where the Cowboys rarely lose.
Texas kept staying alive largely because of Durant.
He helped lead the Longhorns back from a five-point deficit in the final minute of regulation, scored seven points in the first overtime and made two crucial defensive plays to force the third extra period.
