FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — RJ Nembhard had 20 points, Jaedon LeDee converted a three-point play with 2.2 seconds left, and TCU beat Oklahoma State 81-78 on Wednesday night.

Mike Miles scored 18 points, Charles O’Bannon added 15 and Kevin Samuel 14 for TCU (10-7, 3-5 Big 12).

Miles made a layup to make it 78-all with 17 seconds to play. Oklahoma State’s Cade Cunningham, rather than playing for the last shot, raced down court and missed a contested layup five seconds later. LeDee leaked out, took an outlet pass from Taryn Todd and was fouled as he made a driving layup. His free throw capped the scoring.

Cunningham’s potential tying half-court shot as time expired rimmed out.
