Missouri tops Oklahoma in OT, 68-65

COLUMBIA — Good teams seem to inspire Missouri.

Saturday afternoon at Mizzou Arena, Missouri snapped a five-game losing streak with a surprising 68-65 overtime victory over No. 16 Oklahoma.

The win was inconsistent with the Tigers play this season, as they improve to only 11-13 overall and 3-7 in the Big 12.

But as was the case in a victory over Gonzaga and near-misses against Illinois, Oklahoma State and Kansas, a ranked opponent brought out the best in the Tigers, who twice rallied from double-digit deficits in the second half.

Thomas Gardner led the way, scoring 11 of his 18 points in the final seven minutes of the game. Linas Kleiza had 18 points and 13 rebounds while Jason Conley added 10 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

Jason Horton, playing perhaps his best game at the point all season, had 10 assists.

Oklahoma, once 5-0 in the Big 12, falls to 6-4 in the conference and 17-6 overall.

Taj Gray had 19 points, nine rebounds and four blocks for the Sooners. Terrell Everett added 11 points.
