Oklahoma State (16-8, 4-6), coming off back-to-back home wins over Missouri and Oklahoma, is 0-5 in Big 12 road games. The Cowboys now play three straight against nationally-ranked opponents: Texas, Texas A&M and Kansas.
The Cowboys overcame big deficits to beat Oklahoma, Kansas State and Iowa State, but they couldn't pull off a comeback against Nebraska, shooting 31 percent in the second half and 36 percent for the game.
Former Kentucky guard Ed Davender, the only Wildcat with at least 1,500 points and 400 assists, has died. He was 49.
