With just under a minute remaining, the No. 4 ranked Missouri Tigers were on the ropes.
After Texas guard J'Covan Brown hit a jumper to give Texas its first lead of the second half at 66-65, Michael Dixon immediately answered, sending in a running layup with 31 seconds left to give Missouri a 67-66 win.
Dixon was the most productive offensive player for the Tigers, scoring 21 points and shooting 90 percent from the field. Point guard Phil Pressey and forward Ricardo Ratliffe both also contributed 13 points in the win.
Missouri, who fell from No. 2 to No. 4 in The Associated Press poll this week after a road loss to Oklahoma State, are now 7-2 in Big 12 play. The Tigers are back in action this Saturday at Mizzou Arena against rival Kansas.
