WACO, Texas -- Tweety Carter hit two 3-pointers to start overtime and finally put No. 21 Baylor ahead to stay in a 98-92 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday that was filled with wild swings.

Curtis Jerrells led the Bears (14-3, 2-1 Big 12) with 31 points, but missed a chance to win the game in regulation when he made only one free throw with 2.5 seconds left.

Carter, who had three points while playing more than 30 minutes in regulation, broke the 82-82 tie 12 seconds into overtime. He hit another 3 on the Bears' next possession, then added a floater and a steal to finish with 11 points.

Obi Muonelo had 21 points and James Anderson added 20 for Oklahoma State (12-4, 1-1), which needed a 13-0 run in the second half to regain the lead after blowing a 17-point advantage built over the game's first 14 minutes.

The Cowboys had won seven straight.
