Mizzou falls for first time on pair of free throws

ST. LOUIS (RNN) - Tracy Abrams is the man for the next couple of days around the Illinois campus.

He led his team with 22 points, and more importantly, gave No. 23 Missouri its first loss of the season by sinking two free throws with five seconds left for a 65-64 victory.

The Illini (10-2) lost a 63-61 lead when Jabari Brown hit a 3-pointer with 16 seconds left in the game. Then Illinois had a chance to win it after a foul, and Abrams made the best of the opportunity.

Rayvonte Rice added 14 points for Illinois.

The late-game heroics overshadowed and overall strong offensive performance for the Tigers (10-1), who shot 45 percent from the field and 47 percent from the 3-point line.

Jordan Clarkson powered his way to 25 points and eight assists, both game highs, and added six rebounds. Earnest Ross added 13 points and eight rebounds, and Jabari Brown had 10 points and seven rebounds.

Mizzou got off to a hot start with eight unanswered points to begin the ball game.

Illinois took its first lead of the contest with 4:27 in the first half when Nnanna Egwu hit a trey to put his team ahead 24-23.

The Tigers didn't get the lead back until Clarkson hit a free throw to go ahead 36-35 nearly four minutes into the second half. He tied the game at 35 with a 3-pointer a minute earlier.
