COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) _ Missouri went on a 14-4 run late in the game, but Texas A&M made six free throws in the final minute for a 61-57 victory Tuesday night behind Shanne Jones’ career-high 21 points.

But then Tyron Lee hit a 3-pointer to open a 14-4 Missouri run that allowed the Tigers to pull within 55-53 with a minute left.

Dario Quesada hit three of four free throws, Jerald Brown made two more and Calvin Davis made one of two for a 61-53 lead with six seconds left.

Missouri scored its final four points in the last two seconds _ on Dibi Ray’s uncontested layup and then on Tate Decker’s field goal at the buzzer after an A&M turnover.

Derek Grimm scored 17 points and Kelly Thames 15 for Missouri (10-10, 2-6).

Jones made 9 of 12 field goals, and he and Davis had 7 rebounds each as the Aggies controlled the boards, 40-28.
