FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Amric Fields had 12 points and a big part in an upset-sealing run as last-place TCU beat No. 21 Oklahoma State 70-55 on Saturday after the Cowboys had won three consecutive Big 12 games against ranked teams.
The Horned Frogs (15-10, 2-10 Big 12) used a pair of 10-0 runs in the second half, the latter spurt coming in the closing 4 minutes to clinch the victory.
Oklahoma State (17-8, 7-6) was within 56-53 when Anthony Hickey found a wide-open gap and drove for a layup high off the glass with 4:52 left. The Cowboys then went nearly 3 1/2 minutes without scoring.
Fields started the run with two free throws and later had an acrobatic driving layup to make it 64-53 with 1:38 left.
Kyan Anderson led TCU with 14 points despite 4-for-13 shooting. Trey Zeigler added 13 points and Karviar Shepherd had 10, most of his coming in TCU’s first 10-0 run.
Le’Bryan Nash had 19 points for Oklahoma State, and Jeff Newberry scored 10.
Shepherd had the first two and then the last basket in the earlier 10-0 run for TCU in just over three minutes. His jumper with 16:43 left started that big spurt, and he had another after an Oklahoma State turnover.
Zeigler had two free throws with 15:52 left to give the Frogs their first lead of the second half at 38-37. Anderson then had a layup before Shepherd’s dunk with 13:37 left made it 42-37.
The game was tied 10 times, the last when Nash made two free throws with 8:06 left to make it 48-all. Fields made two free throws 17 seconds later to put the Horned Frogs ahead to stay.
