After Keith Shamburger missed a jump shot, Teki Gill-Caesar poked the ball away from an Auburn player who grabbed a rebound. Shamburger got the ball back and didn’t miss on his second attempt. His short jump shot fell giving Missouri a two point lead. Auburn had a chance to send the game into overtime, but their final shot was off the mark and Mizzou ends their home schedule with back to back wins, a 63-61 final at Mizzou Arena.
Shamburger, honored before the game on Senior Night, finished with 21 points on 7 of 14 shooting, 3 of 6 from three point range and 4 of 4 at the line.
