The Kansas Jayhawks rallied from a 55-36 deficit to come back and beat Mizzou, 87-86 in overtime in the last scheduled game between these two bitter Big 12 Conference rivals. Missouri looked poised to capture the Big 12 season Championship with a sweep of their nemesis KU. But the Jayhawks woke up and tied the game at 75 on a three point play late in regulation by Thomas Robinson.

In the O-T, Kansas grabbed the lead, but Missouri regained it with a Marcus Denmon basket to give the Tigers an 86-85 lead with 12 seconds left in overtime. Kansas won the game at the foul line when Tyshawn Taylor made both free throws. Mizzou had a last chance in the final seconds, but couldn’t get a shot off.

The victory ensures Kansas at least a share of the Big 12 Championship.

It was a tough week for the Tigers, losing twice, to Kansas State on Tuesday and to Kansas on Saturday. Missouri’s record now stands at 25-4, 12-4 in the Big 12. Kansas’ record improves to 24-5 and 14-2 in the Big 12.
