NCAABB: Missouri Tigers vs. Kansas Jayhawks

Kansas and Missouri kept their storied rivalry alive just a little bit longer. Tyshawn Taylor and Thomas Robinson made it a memorable ending for Kansas. Robinson kept the game going with a three-point play in the closing seconds of regulation, and Taylor’s two free throws with 8.3 seconds left in overtime gave the Jayhawks (No. 5 ESPN/USA Today, No. 4 AP) an 87-86 win over No. 3 Missouri on Saturday in their final scheduled regular-season matchup.The Tigers, who blew a 19-point second-half lead, never got a potential winning shot off in the final seconds. Michael Dixon was boxed in by Robinson as he tried to get to the basket, and the buzzer eventually sounded on a 105-year-old rivalry steeped in tradition. Robinson finished with 28 points and 12 rebounds for Kansas (24-5, 14-2), which wrapped up at least a share of its eighth straight Big 12 title. Taylor added 24 points, seven in overtime.
