The Mizzou men forced OT, but fell to Arkansas on Saturday afternoon, 86-81. The game was also designated as the annual Rally For Rhyan game benefiting pediatric cancer research. An estimated $65,000 was raised to fight pediatric cancer. Mizzou senior forward Jeremiah Tilmon did not play after taking a leave of absence following a death in his family.
Mizzou drained a season high 13 three-pointers, shooting 41 percent from beyond the arc in the loss. Mizzou forced overtime with a late bucket by redshirt sophomore Parker Braun and a defensive stop in the final seconds of regulation.
This is the second loss for Mizzou since they entered the rankings this past Monday at number 10.
