Kansas Vs. Missouri Final Score: Jayhawks Erase 12-Point Deficit To Defeat Tigers In Overtime, 87-86

The last scheduled game in the Border War series between the Missouri Tigers and Kansas Jayhawks lived up to the hype that featured two top-five teams. Kansas had a poor first half and trailed by 12 points at the break, and a 19-point second half deficit. During the second half Kansas kept chipping away at Missouri's lead and never took a lead in the second half, but did tie the game when Thomas Robinson made a layup and then the following free throw when fouled to tie the game at 75 points with 16 seconds left in regulation.

Missouri had a chance to tie the game, but Robinson had a monster block against Phil Pressey with four seconds left and send the game to overtime.
