KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Danielle Robinson and Amanda Thompson hit big free throws in the final seconds, lifting No. 12 Oklahoma past Oklahoma State (No. 21 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) 74-69 on Saturday and sending the Sooners into the Big 12 title game against Texas A&M.

Andrea Riley, Oklahoma State's streaky 5-foot-5 senior, made six of her first seven shots but missed her last nine and wound up with 32 points -- giving her a tournament-record 112 in just three games.

The victory gave the Sooners (23-9) a three-game season sweep of the Cowgirls (23-10) and pits them against an Aggies team that handed Nebraska its first loss of the season in the other semifinal. A&M and Oklahoma split two games in the regular season.

Robinson had 19 points for the Sooners, Thompson 17 and Nyeshia Stevenson 15.

Robinson's two free throws gave Oklahoma a 70-64 lead with 40 seconds to go in the back-and-forth affair between state rivals, then Tegan Cunningham made a 3-pointer and Oklahoma State trailed by three.

Thompson, fouled immediately, sank both her foul shots. After Cunningham grabbed Riley's missed 3-point attempt and put it in, Robinson calmly sank two more foul shots with 7 seconds left.

The Cowgirls started the game on a 16-4 run but the Sooners caught up right after the start of the second half when Stevenson hit eight quick points, including two 3-pointers for a 46-43 Oklahoma lead.

In the first half, Riley canned two long jumpers and Cunningham sank a pull-up jumper as Oklahoma State seized a 36-25 lead. Robinson, after throwing up an air ball, hit a bucket and made two foul shots to help cut the halftime lead to four points.

Riley, whose 43 points against Iowa State on Friday set the single-game tourney record, was 12 for 30 from the floor and only two of nine beyond the arc. Cunningham had 21 points for the Cowgirls.

Abi Olajuwon's three-point play put the Sooners on top 64-62 with 6:09 to play and the Cowgirls never caught up. A bucket by Carolyn Blair-Mobley cut it to 66-64 but Robinson sank an uncontested bucket a moment later.

The Sooners were 22 of 26 from the line.
