KANSAS CITY, Mo. Dallas Stars Pro Shop . -- Canadas Andrew Wiggins scored 30 points, Wayne Selden Jr. had 14 and No. 10 Kansas pulled away in the final seconds of overtime for a 77-70 victory over Oklahoma State in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 tournament. Naadir Tharpe made four foul shots in the extra session to seal the victory for the top-seeded Jayhawks (24-Cool, who will face fourth-seeded Iowa State in Friday nights semifinals. The No. 16 Cyclones, behind a big game from Melvin Ejim, beat No. 5 seed Kansas State 91-85. Phil Forte briefly gave the Cowboys a 70-68 lead with a 3-pointer a minute into overtime, but the Jayhawks scored the final seven points, all but two of them coming at the foul line. LeBryan Nash scored 19 points to lead the Cowboys (21-12). Forte added 16 points and Marcus Smart finished with 14, though he missed all three of his shots in the extra session. Both teams had chances to earn the win in regulation. Wiggins, from Vaughan, Ont., hit a baseline jumper with a minute left to knot it 67, but Cowboys coach Travis Ford decided against going 2-for-1 on possessions, and Smart missed a 3 with 32 seconds left. The Jayhawks got the rebound and called timeout with 16 seconds left to set up a play for Wiggins, and he missed a tightly guarded 3 with a few ticks left on the lock. Tarik Black gathered in the rebound and stuck it back, but the basket came after time had expired. Black got extended minutes in place of Joel Embiid, the Jayhawks 7-foot freshman centre, who has been ruled out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his back. The senior transfer finished with seven points and 12 rebounds, including a couple with the game in the balance. The Cowboys, who had to play a matinee after dispatching Texas Tech on Wednesday night, didnt look as if they were weary in the first half. They actually pulled out to an early lead, silencing a heavily pro-Kansas crowd that had packed inside the Sprint Center. Kansas responded by taking a 32-23 lead into halftime, and then maintained its advantage early in the second half. But once Black and fellow forward Perry Ellis picked up their fourth fouls, the Cowboys started shredding the Kansas defence by driving the lane. Smart proved to be the most adept at it, picking up fouls when he wasnt hammered on the way to the rim. But just about everyone wearing black and orange got into the act, and Oklahoma State methodically trimmed the lead to 55-49 with about 8 minutes to go. Thats when Cowboys coach Travis Ford changed things up by slapping on a full-court press. It produced two quick turnovers and helped Oklahoma State take a 60-59 lead with 4 minutes left. It was the Cowboys first lead since the 12-minute mark in the first half. The two teams, who each won on their home floor during the regular season, traded blows down the stretch. Selden made a couple free throws for Kansas, Forte answered with two from the foul line for Oklahoma State. Black and Wiggins threw down alley-oop dunks for the Jayhawks, and Murphy hit a pair of free throws and Markel Brown hit a rainbow 3 to give the Cowboys the lead. It just made sense that such a nip-and-tuck game would be decided in overtime. Stitched Stars Jerseys . Tensions rose in the first period when Penguins defenceman Brooks Orpik hit Bruins forward Loui Eriksson with what appeared to be a clean hit. Stars Jerseys China .A. Happs hold on a spot in the Blue Jays starting rotation is in question. https://www.cheapstarsonline.com/ . The United States clinched the final berth into the Ford Worlds, March 28-April 6 at Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, on Saturday in Blaine, Minn.Leading up to SportsCentres Year In Review on Christmas Eve, TSN and TSN.ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at the continuing saga of performance-enhancing drugs in Major League Baseball involving Ryan Braun and Alex Rodriguez. In the beginning, the Biogenesis story that The Miami New Times broke in January sounded like yet another round of the steroid scandal that has plagued baseball for decades. The publication reported that it had obtained documents from the Biogenesis clinic that could link three players – newly-signed Blue Jays outfielder Melky Cabrera along with Bartolo Colon and Yasmani Grandal – to positive tests for performance-enhancing drugs. As the days and weeks wore on, more names emerged as possible links. Bigger names including Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz and Alex Rodriguez hovered around the report, but would Major League Baseball find the smoking gun on these players that had eluded them in the past when trying to pin star players like Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens to PEDs? Major League Baseball sued Biogenesis owner Anthony Bosch in an attempt to obtain the information it needed to bust the story open. By May, Bosch had agreed to work with MLB and by June the League began to conduct interviews with players it believed to be linked to the case. In July, some dominos began to fall. Braun wass the first to get suspended on July 22. Stars Jerseys 2020. The Brewers slugger - who, after successfully appealing a 50-game ban from the 2011 season had declared he had "nothing to hide" – accepted a 65-game ban, enough to keep him out for the duration of the 2013 season. And then came the flood. A total of 13 players were handed suspensions, with 50-game bans going to All-Stars like Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Everth Cabrera amongst others. Their punishment, however, would pale in comparison to what was headed Rodriguezs way. The League suspended A-Rod a total of 211 games, enough to keep him off the field until the start of the 2015 season. The hammer came down on Rodriguez not only for alleged use and possession of banned substance over multiple years, but also for what they called, "his attempts to cover up those violations and obstruct a league investigation." Rodriguez appealed the suspension and actually returned to the field to play 44 games with the New York Yankees at the tail end of the 2013 season. Playing through fan vitriol from fans all year long, Rodriguez posted his lowest percentages since his sophomore 1995 season as a 19-year-old. A-Rod – the only player to appeal his ban – had his appeal hearing heard over a span of 13 days in November, concluding on Nov. 21. A ruling is expected next month and the saga will be far from over.
