UCLA rallies to upset No. 7 Missouri 97-94 in OT
UCLA 97, MISSOURI 94

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- After two defeats to ranked opponents and a
surprising loss to Cal Poly that knocked them out of the Top 25,
the UCLA Bruins are starting to find their way.



Highly touted freshman Shabazz Muhammad hit a go-ahead 3-pointer
with 1:01 left in overtime to help them upset No. 7 Missouri
97-94 on Friday night and extend their winning streak to five
games.



"This is one of the biggest wins we could possibly get," he
said. "We're right back where we want to be to start Pac-12
play."



Travis Wear, who finished with a career-high 22 points, added a
jumper with 12 seconds remaining to close out the Bruins' first
win over a top-10 nonconference opponent since 2007.



"I wanted to put it all together this game," he said.
"Throughout the season so far, I haven't played particularly
well. I tried to go out and bring energy."



Muhammad tied his career high with 27 points, David Wear scored
16, Jordan Adams had 12 and Larry Drew II added 12 assists for
the Bruins (10-3). They had earlier losses to ranked Georgetown
and San Diego State, while wins over Texas, Prairie View A&M,
Long Beach State and Fresno State had failed to get them back
into the Top 25.



The Bruins practiced on Christmas night, forcing three players
to miss the holiday with their families.



"They practiced really good the last three days. It's an
attitude," coach Ben Howland said. "I'm really happy with how
our guys kept fighting."



Phil Pressey missed a 3-pointer with 5 seconds to go before
Laurence Bowers grabbed the rebound and missed a 3-pointer in
front of the Tigers' bench as time expired.



"The play was for Earnest on a screen but Phil took the shot off
a ball-screen action and he didn't make it," Missouri coach
Frank Haith said.



Pressey finished with 19 points and a career-high 19 of
Missouri's 21 assists, including all 12 of his team's in the
first half. Keion Bell and Bowers had 17 points each, Earnest
Ross added 16 and Jabari Brown had 14 for the Tigers (10-2).
They were playing their first true road game of the season but
had a vocal group of fans among the 11,854 at Pauley Pavilion.



"The Wear twins played great. Shabazz played great. They had a
lot of confidence," Bowers said. "I don't think we executed our
game plan. We shot ourselves in the foot with certain plays."



Scrambling near the baseline, Drew found Muhammad on the right
perimeter and hit him with the pass that led to the winning
basket, his second 3-pointer of overtime.



"I'm really comfortable. I like taking the big shots," Muhammad
said. "Larry trusted me on the shot and I just hit it."



His first one gave the Bruins a 91-88 lead before Brown tied it
with a 3-pointer, the Tigers' season-high 12th of the game. He
had four of those.



Ross got fouled with 45 seconds to go. He missed the first and
made the second to draw the Tigers within one before Travis
Wear's last basket. The Tigers blew an eight-point lead with
4:04 to play in regulation.



"We made some really gambling plays and that really cost us,"
Haith said. "We need to learn how to finish a game out in the
last three minutes."



As the nation's top rebounding team, the Tigers controlled the
boards, 50-36, but they committed 17 turnovers that led to 36
points by the Bruins.



Adams' layup tied the game at 88 with 11 seconds to go in
regulation. With four fouls to give, the Bruins chose to use
them up rather than allow Missouri to run an offensive set.
Adams grabbed Pressey and flung him to the ground with 4 seconds
left. Pressey stayed down briefly before getting up.



After a timeout, Brown's jumper missed and Travis Wear came up
with a block when Bell went for the offensive rebound as
regulation expired.



The teams traded runs in the second half, with the Bruins ending
on an 11-2 spurt to force overtime. Missouri preceded that burst
with 12 straight points of its own to turn a three-point deficit
into an 86-77 lead, its largest since midway through the opening
half. Pressey scored the first five, Bell stole the ball and
dunked on a fast break, and Bowers capped it with a three-point
play.



After the score was tied 47-all at the break, the Bruins opened
the second half on a 16-7 run to go up 63-54. Missouri fought
back from the perimeter, hitting four 3-pointers to close to
77-74.



The Bruins' hadn't beaten such a highly ranked nonconference
opponent since Nov. 20, 2007, when they defeated No. 10 Michigan
State.



The game was another thrilling chapter in the teams' history.
The Bruins beat the Tigers 75-74 in the second round of the 1995
NCAA tournament when Tyus Edney banked in the winning shot at
the buzzer after a full-court dash with 4.8 seconds to play.
UCLA went on to win its record 11th national championship. Edney
is now the school's director of basketball operations.
