WACO, Texas (AP) — MaCio Teague felt like he was in the quiet of a practice gym when he stood at the free throw line for No. 1 Baylor in the closing seconds. And he kept making them.

Teague's 24 points included six consecutive free throws in the final 14 seconds, four after frustrated Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton was ejected because of consecutive technical fouls, and the Bears won 78-70 for their 20th victory in a row.

“I just try to shoot them and make them all net," Teague said. “It just felt like I was in the gym getting practice shots. It felt quiet all around. It felt great."

Jared Butler added 15 points for Baylor (21-1, 10-0 Big 12), which had five players score in double figures. Freddie Gillespie had 12 points and 11 rebounds.

The Cowboys (11-12, 1-9) also had five players in double figures and were within 70-68 after Lindy Waters III, playing with a protective mask, made two free throws with 35 seconds left
