“It's so tough here for a lot of reasons,” he said. “(KU coach) Bill (Self) does a great job. They're so talented. The atmosphere's great. Those two or three stretches where we just gave them those (runs) are what you have to try to avoid.”

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.

"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."
