AUBURN, AL (RNN) - Earnest Ross' four free throws with 1:35 left helped Missouri come from behind and overtake Auburn for a 70-68 win on Saturday.
The Tigers (13-2) were trailing 67-66 when Ross made his first of two late-game trips to the line. He nailed them to put his team ahead and extended the lead to three points a minute later.
A 1-of-2 trip to the line for Chris Denson pulled Auburn (8-5) within one, and Mizzou turned the ball over after rebounding the second missed free throw.
Tajh Shamsid-Deen's attempt at a long inbounds pass was swatted away, ending the game.
Jordan Clarkson scored 20 points for Mizzou. Ross had 16, and Jabari Brown had 15.
K.T. Harrell scored a game-high 27 points for the Tigers. Shamsid-Deen scored 13, and Denson scored 11.
Auburn had a hot hand all night, but didn't give itself many opportunities at second shots. Mizzou held a 44-28 rebounding advantage.
