Iowa State 98, Oklahoma State 97 (Final-Triple OT) 

Once again, the Iowa State Cyclones and Oklahoma State Cowboys played in a game that went down to the wire. 

This time, it would take three overtimes to decide a winner on Monday night at Gallagher-Iba Arena in Stillwater.

The game came down to the final possession as Le'Bryan Nash missed a jumper after the Cowboys gained the ball through a turnover and a forced jump ball.

As Nash's shot hit off the rim, the Cyclones were able to celebrate their first win in Stillwater since 1988.  

The biggest shot of the night for the victors came at the end of the second overtime when Naz Long drilled a three at the top of the key after DeAndre Kane rescued an offensive rebound. 

Long also made two key free throws near the end of the third overtime period. 

Kane tied for the scoring lead of the night with Oklahoma State's LeBryan Nash as both players scored 26 points. 

Nash was joined by Smart in the 20-point club for the Cowboys, but their efforts would come up just short when the final buzzer sounded.

Kane was one assist and rebound away from a triple-double, while Melvin Ejim and Dustin Hogue both recorded double-doubles for the Cyclones.
