Big 12 Basketball Tournament 2011 Bracket Update: Kansas Hangs On Against Oklahoma State

Kansas avoided becoming the second No. 1 power conference tourney seed of the day to fall, outlasting Oklahoma State, 63-62. The Cowboys had a chance to win at the buzzer, but J.P. Olukemi couldn't get his shot to fall. Marcus Morris led Kansas with 16 points and 11 rebounds, while Keiton Page dealt 23 points and a pair of boards for Okie State.

The Jayhawks could've just set up a rematch against rival Kansas State, who gave the Jayhawks their worst loss of the season and knocked them from No. 1 in the country. We'll find out who Kansas will play shortly.

Other than that loss to Kansas State, Kansas has been on a tear. Thursday's win was their first one-score victory since January 15.
