March 9, 2013 at 8:31 PM

STILLWATER, Okla., March 9 (UPI) -- Le'Bryan Nash and Marcus Smart combined for 45 points Saturday and 14th-ranked Oklahoma State got past No. 10 Kansas State 76-70.

Nash netted 24 points and Smart provided 21 for the Cowboys (23-7, 13-5 Big 12), who got back on the winning track following a Wednesday loss at Iowa State.

They clinched the third seed in next week's Big 12 conference tournament with the help of Markel Brown, who finished with 16 points.

Rodney McGruder scored 22 points and Thomas Gipson came off the bench to add 15 for the Wildcats (25-6, 14-4), who finished with a share of the Big 12 regular-season title despite the loss thanks to Baylor's defeat of Kansas later Saturday.
