Kansas defeats Missouri, 87-86

  • 3 p.m., Feb. 25, 2012
  • Allen Fieldhouse, Lawrence, KS

FINAL: Taylor's free throws, Robinson's block give KU thrilling 87-86 OT win over Missouri

Tyshawn Taylor put in two free throws with eight seconds left in overtime, and Missouri's Michael Dixon passed the ball away on MU's final possession as time expired as the Jayhawks came away with a thrilling 87-86 overtime victory over Missouri on Saturday afternoon at Allen Fieldhouse.

Thomas Robinson, meanwhile, came up with one of the biggest blocks in Kansas history, rejecting Phil Pressey's layup attempt with two seconds left in regulation to keep the score tied at 75.

KU trailed, 58-39, with 16:42 left in the second half before making the huge comeback.

Robinson led KU with 28 points and 12 rebounds, while Tyshawn Taylor added 24 points in 44 minutes.

MU's Marcus Denmon contributed 28 points on 10-for-15 shooting.

With the win, KU clinches at least a share of the Big 12 regular-season title.

KU (24-5, 14-2 Big 12) will play at Oklahoma State at 8 p.m. Monday.

Matt Lacey

And UNC is the headline on ESPN of course.

Laura Hrabak

Goodbye Mizzou thanks for letting us dominate you for decades...you are NOT WELCOME in the PHOG ANYMORE!!! We won't miss you... would love to play you in the Big 12 tournament but you will probably have to beat K State first and we know how that is gone.

Time for some keg stands

Micky Baker in reply to Jeff Kilgore

I don't know, but it may have been the greatest game ever outside of the NCAA Tourney. And this is after losing Withey.

This KU team passed the test of adversity today. Withey lost. Down by 19. And they come back and win.

fansincewilt

Could not be a better finish!

Scott Wooten

Good over evil. RCJ!

Jhawk7782 in reply to Jeff Kilgore

Young is the best player off the bench..he was open numerous times but not bfed the ball. Another crow feather caught in my throat.

Fljhk

This is why Mizzou wanted out of the Big 12. Good riddance!

Jeff Kilgore

I'm 52. This was historic. We have won at least a dozen games as improbable as this in my lifetime.

Joshua Hatcher

Thomas Robinson for the Player of the Year. SECURED.

If all of the recruits do not commit I will be stunned.
