The Mizzou Tigers wrapped up a three game homestand last night against Vanderbilt.
And Frank Haith's troops were looking for their third straight win.
Vandy beat the Tigers earlier this season in Nashville.
Both teams went into the action tied for fifth in the SEC.
And Vandy was off to a good start, Rod Odom with the three from the wing, 7-4 Commodores.
Then Vandy taking it inside to freshman Damien Jones for the layup, Commodores up by 4.
But Mizzou makes a late first half run, Earnest Ross with the three from the far corner, it's 20-19 Tigers.
Vandy led by one at halftime.
Second half, Mizzou's Jonathan Williams with only his second three of the season, it's 37-34 Tigers.
Vanderbilt not going away, Shelby Moats with the three from the top of the key, 46-44 Commodores.
Mizzou rallies late, Jordan Clarkson weaves this way through the Vandy defense and the hoop, 58-53 Tigers.
Then Ross with the dagger, three pointer, and Mizzou wins 67-64.

Arkansas took on South Carolina Wednesday night and the Razorbacks won 71-64.  Michael Qualls led the Hogs with 20 points.


JUPITER, Fla--It's not unusual for the St. Louis Cardinals players to rub shoulders with Hall of Fame legends at spring training down in Jupiter, Florida.
After all Bob Gibson, Lou Brock and Red Schoendienst have been dispensing wisdom for decades.
But there's a new Hall of Famer wearing the bird on the bat this spring.
Ozzie Smith is spending a week or so down in Jupiter giving fielding pointers to youngsters like Pete Kozma.
"It's just a great feeling to have an opportunity to be around what was I loved doing," said Ozzie Smith.  "I see myself as a guy who can offer guys an opportunity to sit and talk about the wars I've been through.  And the wars they have before them."
