No. 10 Gonzaga 69, No. 21 Oklahoma State 68: Kevin Pangos scored 23 points and Kelly Olynyk had 21 – all in the second half – as the visiting Bulldogs edged the Cowboys.

Gary Bell, Jr. drained a wide-open 3-pointer off a pass from Pangos to give Gonzaga (13-1) a 67-65 lead with 35.7 seconds left. After Marcus Smart missed a pair of free throws for the Cowboys with 8.7 seconds remaining, Pangos sealed the win with two from the charity stripe.
