Missouri falls to #11 Kentucky

Posted:

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Aaron Harrison scored 21 points and James Young added 20 to help No. 11 Kentucky beat Missouri 84-79 on Saturday.

The Wildcats (16-5, 6-2 Southeastern Conference) kept their poise one game after calling a player-only meeting to discuss the team's issues away from home. Andrew Harrison's 3-pointer just 1:42 into the matchup gave the team a lead it wouldn't relinquish.

Jabari Brown finished with a career-high 33 points and Jordan Clarkson scored 28 to keep Missouri (16-5, 4-4) in the game. Clarkson's layup with 51.9 seconds remaining narrowed the Tigers' deficit to 80-77, but Aaron Harrison answered with a layup 30 seconds later to end the threat.

Missouri's frontcourt offense only mustered three points. The team fell to 43-3 at home under third-year coach Frank Haith, but has lost two of its last four.
