Mizzou forces OT against No. 11 Xavier, loses 83-82

LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA. (AP) - Edmond Sumner's free throw with 0.3 seconds left in overtime gave No. 11 Xavier an 83-82 win over Missouri in the opening round of the Tire Pros Invitational on Thursday.

Sumner was fouled by Missouri's Terrence Phillips along the sideline, after the Musketeers inbounded the ball near midcourt. He missed the first one short, then rattled in the second for the win.

Sumner and J.P. Macura each scored 19 points for Xavier (3-0), which got 13 apiece from Trevon Bluiett and Sean O'Mara.

Frankie Hughes scored 24 points for Missouri (1-1), and Kevin Puryear finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds.

Phillips scored 21 for Missouri, which never got off a desperation shot after Sumner's deciding free throw.
