SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) - Tiffany Bias hit all of her free throws in the final seconds and No. 13 Oklahoma State held off Michigan State to win 63-57 on Thursday in the Puerto Rico Classic.

Michigan State called a timeout with 43 seconds remaining after trailing 57-54. The Spartans grabbed their own rebound, but turned the ball over after being called for travelling. Bias shot 4 of 4 from the free throw line in the remaining seconds, and Oklahoma State (9-0) clinched the win after rallying back from a five-point deficit (42-37) with 11:05 to play.

The Spartans (6-5) led by three points at the half after holding Oklahoma State to just 24.2 percent shooting. Oklahoma State went 13 minutes without a field goal before going on a 7-0 run with 3:57 left before the break.
