Center Isaiah Austin, shooting over Markel Brown, has 12 points and 12 rebounds for Baylor.

WACO, Texas — Cory Jefferson scored 25 and Baylor overcame a buzzer-beater that forced overtime to hand Oklahoma State its seventh straight loss 70-64 Monday night, the Cowboys' last of three games without suspended guard Marcus Smart.

The Bears (17-9, 5-8 Big 12) won in overtime at home for the second time in three days. Baylor's Brady Heslip hit a tying 3-pointer at the buzzer in regulation Saturday in a double-overtime victory over Kansas State.

The Cowboys (16-10, 4-9) can finish no better than .500 in the conference but will get Smart back from his three-game suspension for pushing a heckling fan late in a loss at Texas Tech. He returns Saturday at home in the rematch with the Red Raiders.

Markel Brown and Phil Brown tried to make up for Smart's absence. Brown scored 26 and Forte, Smart's high school teammate in the Dallas area, added 20.

Isaiah Austin had 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Bears, who won for the fourth time in six games.

FAMU 68, DELAWARE ST. 63: Jamie Adams scored 19 and had a key three-point play with 1:11 left for the host Rattlers (10-16, 6-7 MEAC).

MARYLAND: Coach Mark Turgeon said he received an apology from the ACC about a mistake made by the referees and officials working at the scorer's table in Saturday's game at Duke. There was a mix-up regarding the possession arrow that cost the Terps a possession in their 69-67 loss.

AP POLL: Syracuse remained No. 1, and No. 2 Florida and No. 3 Wichita State each moved up a spot. No. 23 UCLA and No. 25 Gonzaga replaced SMU and Pittsburgh.


NO. 7 DUKE 84, NO. 8 MARYLAND 63: Elizabeth Williams had 17 points and 11 rebounds to help the host Blue Devils (23-3, 10-2 ACC) avoid their first consecutive losses since 2007-08. The Terrapins (20-5, 8-4) shot a season-worst 32 percent.

NO. 2 NOTRE DAME 87, GA. TECH 72: Jewell Loyd scored 27, Natalie Achonwa added 21 and the host Irish (25-0, 12-0 ACC) held the Yellow Jackets to 31 percent shooting.

NO. 21 NEBRaSKA: The school said coach Connie Yori is back home after collapsing during the second half of Sunday's game against Indiana.

AP POLL: Connecticut remained a unanimous No. 1. Rutgers entered at No. 25 while Vanderbilt fell out.
