WATCH: Kerwin Roach sinks layup in final seconds to send Texas past Oklahoma State

Texas men’s basketball, shorthanded on Saturday, kept its NCAA Tournament hopes afloat with some last minute heroics vs. Oklahoma State.

The Longhorns made their way past the Cowboys in a 65-64 win after point guard Kerwin Roach sunk the go-ahead layup with just 1.2 seconds left on the clock. The win brought Texas to 7-9 in Big 12 play after entering the day tied with Oklahoma State in the league standings.

Texas was without Eric Davis Jr. on Saturday after the guard’s name was listed in documents related to an FBI probe surrounding corruption in the sport. Freshman forward Mo Bamba, battling a left toe injury, left the contest at halftime and did not return.

Texas can solidify its NCAA Tournament with a win over No. 8 Kansas or No. 21 West Virginia in the final week of the regular season. The Longhorns were most recently projected to be one of the first four teams out in ESPN’s tournament bracketology.
