The 12th-ranked Baylor women’s basketball team got a layup from senior guard Odyssey Sims with 3.8 seconds left to break a 66-66 tie and beat number 8 Oklahoma State 69-66 in overtime at Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater on Sunday afternoon.

OSU rallied from a 16-point second half deficit to seemingly take control of the game in regulation.

The Cowgirls went on a 28-8 run to take a 57-53 lead when Kendra Suttles scored on a layup and drew a foul.

After both teams exchanged baskets, Baylor trailed by three in the final 10 seconds when Makenzie Robertson, the daughter of Baylor coach Kim Mulkey, hit a 3-pointer to tie the game at 61.

Robertson led all scorers with 18 points, getting all of her points on six 3-pointers.

OSU still had about five seconds left, and Tiffany Bias raced downcourt and had a layup that could have won it, but she missed at the buzzer and the game went to overtime.

In OT, Baylor scored the first five points, then the Cowgirls got a 3-pointer from Roshunda Johnson and a Brittney Martin layup to tie the game.

With the score 66-66 and the clock under 15 seconds, Suttles missed a three-point attempt.

The ball was tapped out near midcourt, and Sims got to it, racing in for a layup and drawing a foul with 3.8 seconds left.

She hit the free throw to put Baylor up 69-66.

OSU had one final possession, but Bias had the ball stolen by Sims as time expired.

Sims scored 17 points, but made just 7 of 27 shots and missed all eight three-point attempts.

Bias had 17 points to lead OSU, but made just 5 of 16 shots.

Johnson added 15 points for the Cowgirls, while Suttles had 12.

Baylor outrebounded OSU 55-40.

The win gives Baylor sole possession of first place in the Big 12 standings at 6-1.

OSU drops to 17-2 on the season, 6-2 in conference play.

Baylor has won nine in a row over the Cowgirls.

OSU will visit TCU on Wednesday, then travel to Norman to play Oklahoma on Saturday at 2:00.
