Tony Crocker converted an unbelievable four-point play with 7.3 seconds left as OU topped Baylor 92-91 in overtime on Tuesday night.

Crocker was fouled by Aaron Bruce while making a 3-pointer from the left wing and then hit his free throw to put OU ahead late. Curtis Jerrells missed a pair of free throws with one second left that could've given the Bears the win.

Kevin Rogers got the rebound on Jerrells' second miss, but was unable to put it back at the buzzer.

Blake Griffin scored a career-high 29 points and had 15 rebounds to lead the Sooners.

Rogers ended up with 18 points, Tweety Carter chipped in 17 and Henry Dugat added 13 for the Bears.

It was the second straight nail-biter for the Sooners, who beat Texas Tech in its last game on a 28-foot 3-pointer with 1.3 seconds left.
