Missouri vs. NC State final score: Tigers steal one on the road

Jamie Squire

A three from Jabari Brown gave Missouri the lead for good as the Tigers narrowly avoided a second straight loss.

Jabari Brown hit a three with 54 seconds left in the game to lift the No. 25 Missouri Tigers to a 68-64 win over N.C. State Saturday night in Raleigh.

The three from Brown put the Tigers up by one and answered a triple from the Wolfpack's Ralston Turner just 47 seconds earlier.

N.C. State had a chance to tie the game, but Turner missed from long range with 10 seconds left. Two free throws from Tony Criswell put the game away.

Jordan Clarkson led Missouri with 21 points, though that came partly because of his 9-of-10 shooting night from the free-throw line. He was just 5-of-15 from the field.

T.J. Warren led N.C. State with another dominating performance. He had 24 points on 11-of-23 shooting to go along with 13 rebounds. No other N.C. State player attempted more than 11 shots.

With the win, Missouri narrowly avoided a second consecutive loss. The Tigers dropped one to Illinois a week ago. Meanwhile N.C. State saw it's seven-game winning streak snapped and will look to rebound Monday against UNC-Greensboro.
