Quote: Big 12 officials are reviewing video of No. 25 Texas Tech's 69-64 overtime loss at No. 7 Oklahoma to try to determine whether there was a glitch in the game clock during the final seconds of regulation.

Television replays of the Monday night game, which was broadcast by ESPN, show that two pauses on the clock may have affected the final seven seconds of the second half and given Oklahoma extra time before a game-tying shot that forced overtime.

The outcome of the game cannot be reversed. :bang:

``We're aware of an apparent clock problem,'' Big 12 spokesman Bo Carter said Wednesday. ``We're just going to evaluate things. We're working to correct any clock problems and doing a review with all the schools.''

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported on its online edition Wednesday that TV replays showed the Sooners may have gotten an extra 1.7 seconds before Hollis Price hit an off-balance jumper to tie the game at 60-60 and force overtime.

The first clock pause appeared to have happened with 6.7 seconds remaining when the game was tied at 58-58.

Tech then went ahead 60-58 after Will Chavis made two free throws with 4.5 seconds left. On the ensuing inbound pass, Price appeared to dribble the ball twice before the clock started, and went the length of the court for his game-tying shot, which was in the air as the buzzer sounded.

ESPN broke down the apparent clock problem during a segment Tuesday night.

``Once they've looked into it, they'll call us and tell us what they think,'' Tech athletic director Gerald Myers told the newspaper. ``That's about all we can do right now. They're not going to reverse the game, once it's in the book.''
