AUSTIN, Texas (AP) – Andrew Jones made a long 3-point basket with 1.8 seconds remaining, and Texas pulled off a miraculous 84-83 win over Oklahoma Monday night to snap a five-game losing streak.
The Sooners (8-11, 2-6 Big 12) led by five points after a 7-0 push, but Eric Davis Jr. made a 3-pointer for Texas (8-12, 2-6) with 11.5 seconds left. Oklahoma's Kameron McGusty missed two free throws before Jones hit the winner.
Shaq Cleare led Texas with a career-best 23 points. Davis scored 18, and Jones added 16.
Freshman Kristian Doolittle led Oklahoma with a career-best 29 points. McGusty, also a freshman, scored a career-high 21.
Texas took double-figure leads five times during the second half and led by 10 with nine minutes remaining. But Doolittle and McGusty kept Oklahoma in the game.
Texas led 41-39 at halftime despite receiving nothing offensively from its hottest player recently, Jarrett Allen. The freshman forward missed six of seven shots from the field and scored four points, but the Longhorns got 11 points from Cleare and hit five 3-pointers, including three by Davis.
Allen finished with 10 points and 12 rebounds.
Oklahoma's top scorer this season, Jordan Woodard, missed his only shot and played only 10 minutes in the half because of foul trouble. Doolittle had 14 points and McGusty scored eight.
Woodard finished with eight points.
