WACO, Texas (AP) -Ekpe Udoh?s tip-in with 1.6 seconds remaining capped a wild finish Saturday and gave No. 24 Baylor a 64-62 victory over Missouri.
The Bears (10-5, 6-4 Big 12) had led from the opening minute before Missouri took a 62-61 lead with 47 seconds left on Kim English?s breakaway layup and free throw after an intentional foul on LaceDarius Dunn.
But after English missed the second free throw and J.T. Tiller misfired on the following possession, Baylor?s Anthony Jones grabbed the rebound and Dunn was fouled on a fast break with 6 seconds left.
Dunn made the first free throw to tie it, but he missed the second. Baylor?s Quincy Acy grabbed the rebound and took a fadeaway that bounced off the rim. Dunn?s putback was too strong, but Udoh went up between Tiller and Justin Safford for the game-winner.
Zaire Taylor led Missouri (18-7, 6-4) with 15 points.
Dunn finished with 17 points, while Tweety Carter had 14 and Acy added 12 points and a game-high 11 rebounds for the Bears.
Dunn's tying free throw was Baylor's first point since he made two free throws with 5:39 left to push the lead to 61-56.
English and Safford both had 13 points for the Tigers.
Baylor controlled the backboards and tempo for most of the first half, taking a 38-32 lead behind 14 points from Dunn. English sparked a 9-3 run in the closing minutes of the first that kept the Tigers within range.
