(Newser) – No. 18 Texas A&M snapped a three-game losing streak today with a 59-56 Big 12 road win over Oklahoma State, reports the Associated Press. The win wasn't in the bag until OSU's Ibrahima Thomas missed two free throws with 20 seconds left. Dominique Kirk had hit two go-ahead free throws with 44 ticks remaining.

Josh Carter led the Aggies with 13 points, but a leg injury kept him out for the final sequence. The Aggies (16-4, 2-3) were coming off a five-overtime loss to No. 25 Baylor Wednesday in another Big 12 game. Oklahoma State (10-9, 1-4), off to its worse conference start ever, was led by James Anderson with 15.
