Shamburger leads Missouri to 63-61 win over Auburn
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Keith Shamburger scored 21 points, tying his season high, and drained a 10-footer with 10.9 seconds remaining on senior night to lift Missouri over Auburn 63-61 on Tuesday.
The game-winning bucket capped a 9-0 run for the Tigers (9-21, 3-14 Southeastern Conference), who won for just the second time in 16 games. Freshmen Montaque Gill-Caesar and Namon Wright each added 10 points.
KT Harrell scored 24 points to lead Auburn (12-18, 4-13), but his 3-point attempt at the buzzer bounced harmlessly off the rim.
The Tigers played without Antoine Mason for a second straight game after the death of the guard’s father, former NBA forward Anthony Mason, on Saturday. Both teams observed a moment of silence before the game in Mason’s memory.
The Tigers have lost five consecutive games.
