Missouri holds off Arkansas in Columbia

Posted:

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Jabari Brown drove the lane for the go-ahead basket with 12.2 seconds left for the last of his 25 points and Missouri survived a late surge by Arkansas for an 86-85 victory on Thursday night.

Jordan Clarkson had 27 points to lead Missouri (17-7, 5-6 SEC), which ended the first three-game losing streak of coach Frank Haith's three seasons. The last two wins have come against the Razorbacks (15-9, 4-7) and former Missouri coach Mike Anderson, including a four-point win on the road Jan. 28.

Rashad Madden had 17 points for Arkansas, which scored 10 straight points to take an 85-83 lead with the go-ahead points on Mardracus Wade's layup with 1:14 to go after Clarkson's blown layup on the other end. Madden drove the lane for a shot that rolled out with two seconds to go.

Alandise Harris added 16 points and Bobby Portis had 15 for the Razorbacks.
