Stillwater, Okla. — DeMarre Carroll and Matt Lawrence each scored 19 points, and Missouri held off a late rally. The Tigers (16-3, 3-1 Big 12) led, 91-76, with 4:10 to play but were outscored, 19-6, down the stretch. All six of Missouri’s points came at the free-throw line.

Norman, Okla. — Blake Griffin had 27 points and 18 rebounds for his 15th double-double, and Oklahoma became the first team in the nation with 18 wins. Griffin broke a Big 12 record with his eighth game with at least 20 points and 15 rebounds, surpassing the previous mark set by Kevin Durant of Texas and Michael Beasley of Kansas State.

Manhattan — LaceDarius Dunn tied a school record with nine three-pointers while scoring 33 points. Curtis Jerrells had 18 points and Quincy Acy and Kevin Rogers each had 12 for the Bears (15-3, 3-1 Big 12), who led the entire way. Denis Clemente had 17 points for Kansas State (11-7, 0-4 Big 12), which has lost its first four conference games for the first time since the 1996-97 season.

Interim coach Frank Martin sure is keeping the tradition going in Manhattan!

I was switching back and forth between the KSU game and the MU game. Missouri really folded at the end and needed the help of a good defensive play by Carroll and a bad call by the ref to hang on at the end.
