No. 23 Missouri Upset By Illinois, 65-64

When Jabari Brown made a 3-pointer with 14.9 seconds left, No. 23 Missouri celebrated as if it had won its fifth consecutive Braggin' Rights game against Illinois. This time, though, there was a different ending. Johnathan Williams III fouled with 4.6 ticks remaining, and Tracy Abrams made both free throws to give the Illini a 65-64 victory. Missouri's Tony Criswell heaved a last-ditch attempt from half-court, but the shot fell harmlessly into the stands. Clarkson finished with 25 points, six rebounds and a career-best eight assists. Earnest Ross added 13 for the Tigers (10-1), who entered the game as the lone unbeaten school in the Southeastern Conference. The Tigers scored their fewest points of the season one game after its previous low in a 66-60 win against Western Michigan. Missouri coach Frank Haith said the Illini were the more physical team.
