SLU led at the half 35-31, but Mizzou's rebounding edge finally yielded the Tigers an 8-point lead midway through the second half. The Billikens mounted a late drive to narrow the lead. Marque Perry then tied the score 67-67 with a 3-point basket, leaving 4.8 seconds on the clock. Mizzou's Wesley Stokes then hit the game winner at the buzzer.
