COLUMBIA, MO -- DeMarre Carroll had 15 points and 10 rebounds, helping No. 15 Missouri wind up a perfect season at home and grab a share of second place in the Big 12 with a 73-64 victory over No. 4 Oklahoma on Wednesday night.

Leo Lyons added 15 points and J.T. Tiller had 13 for Missouri (25-5, 12-3), which went 18-0 at home after regaining its footing from a 25-point spanking at Kansas three days earlier. Missouri
fans typically find their seats after the school's first basket, but most in a raucous sellout crowd of 15,061 on senior night remained on its feet throughout.

Blake Griffin had 16 points and 21 rebounds, his nation-leading 24th double-double of the season, for Oklahoma (26-4, 12-3), which has lost three of four. Taylor Griffin added 14 points and eight rebounds, while the rest of the Sooners were a combined 12-for-40.
