Because with the Sooners threatening to spoil the celebration and the Jayhawks’ offense gone stale, Tharpe took over — dropping in 14 of his game-high 19 points with the game on the line.

“At the end,” Perry Ellis said, “he didn’t let us lose.”

"This is a game we would have lost in November or even January," Self said. "I thought OU played very well, and our guys just kind of figured out a way to do it."
