Tech battles, falls to MU
COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Kim English scored 19 points in the first half, Marcus Denmon had 13 after the break and No. 2 Missouri had just enough to avoid a second straight upset with a shaky 63-50 victory over Texas Tech on Saturday.
Jaye Crockett had 11 points and 11 rebounds and Ty Nurse had 13 points for Texas Tech (7-13, 0-8 Big 12), which shaved a 15-point deficit to seven on Clark Lammert's 3-pointer off the glass at the shot clock buzzer with 2:36 to go.
Missouri (19-2, 6-2) finished with six straight points, including Ricardo Ratliffe's dunk in transition with a minute left after English blocked a shot and then saved the ball from going out of bounds.
