KANSAS CITY, MO - MARCH 09: Brandon Richardson #3 of the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Keiton Page #12 of the Oklahoma State Cowboys fight for possesion in the second half of their first round game in the 2011 Phillips 66 Big 12 Men's Basketball Tournament at Sprint Center on March 9, 2011 in Kansas City, Missouri.

The ninth seeded Cowboys used 16 points from Keiton Page to take the narrow upset. Page, who lead the Big 12 in free throw shooting percentage, missed the front end of a one-and-one with 16 seconds left, but Nebraska's Lance Jeter fell down and turned the ball over, preventing the Huskers from taking the game winner.
The loss drops Nebraska out of any NCAA Tournament talk, which started after they defeated Texas in February.
The Cowboys face the top seeded Kansas Jayhawks in the second round of the Big 12 Tournament tomorrow, Thursday, at 11:30 a.m. CT from the Sprint Center in Kansas City.
