Oral Roberts edges Mizzou on last second layup

TULSA, Okla. (AP) -- Michael Craion's layup with nine-tenths of a second left and interception of the ensuing inbounds pass gave Oral Roberts a 60-59 victory over Missouri on Wednesday night.

Dominique Morrison was the leading scorer with 21 points for the Golden Eagles (6-4), who rallied from a 57-47 deficit in the final four minutes. Craion scored 14 points.

Marcus Denmon came off the bench to score 17 points for the Tigers (5-3), but missed a free throw on the front end of a one-and-one with 9.2 seconds left.

Missouri didn't lead until ending the first half with 12 consecutive points for a 26-24 lead at intermission.

Craion scored the first three points of the second half to give the Golden Eagles a 27-26 edge, but J.T. Tiller answered with a 3-pointer to put the Tigers ahead 29-27. Missouri led the rest of the game until the final second.
