Stillwater, OK (Sports Network) - Kansas came into the contest seeking revenge against the team that broke its lengthy home-winning streak, and by the time it was over, they accomplished its goal.

In a double-overtime thriller, Naadir Tharpe's floater proved to be the difference as the No. 9 Jayhawks returned the favor by downing 14th-ranked Oklahoma State on its home court, 68-67, in a pivotal matchup for top positioning in the Big 12 conference.

Despite missing its first seven shots in the extra sessions, Kansas (22-4, 10-3 Big 12) trailed by just one before Tharpe's tear-drop floater with 20 seconds remaining in the second OT put the visitors on top by one.

The Cowboys (19-6, 9-4) had two chances on their final possession, but Markel Brown's jumper misfired and Phil Forte, after grabbing the offensive rebound, turned it over as Oklahoma State saw its seven-game winning streak come to an end.
