Leo Lyons returned to Missouri’s starting lineup for the first time in 10 games and scored 27 points and 18 rebounds, both career highs for the junior, but the Tigers fall 75-73 to Oklahoma State.
Byron Eaton, OSU’s star player had a shot bounce out and drop back in with 1.7 seconds to give the Cowboys the win.
Keon Lawrence had 13 points including a bucket with 33 seconds to play to tie the game at 73. J.T. Tiller added 11. The Tigers fall to 5-8 in the Big 12.
Still, despite the loss, you can’t look past Lyons’ performance. He hit 12 of 13 shots and some of them were long range shots, with a couple coming just inside the three point arc. It was great to see Lyons continue to step his game up.
