Justin Smith scored 19 points as the Arkansas Razorbacks upset the No. 10 Missouri Tigers 86-81 in overtime Saturday afternoon in Columbia, Mo.

The Razorbacks (16-5, 8-4 Southeastern Conference) have won six consecutive games in league play.

Moses Moody added 16 points as Arkansas bolstered its hopes for an NCAA Tournament berth with a key Quad 1 victory.

Xavier Pinson scored 23 points for the Tigers (13-5, 6-5), who have suffered back-to-back losses for the first time this season.

Missouri played without center Jeremiah Tilmon, who was absent due to a death in his family. Tilmon had 25 points and 11 rebounds when the Tigers won 81-68 at Arkansas earlier this season.

Mitchell Smith started in place of Tilmon and hit two 3-point jumpers as Missouri broke out to a 10-4 lead.

Moody scored seven early points for the Razorbacks to cut their deficit to 10-9. But then their offense stalled after Moody picked up his second foul with 14:36 left in the half.

Pinson and Torrence Watson each hit two 3-pointers as the Tigers moved ahead 27-18. But the Razorbacks picked up their defensive pressure to cut their deficit to 35-31 at the half.

With Moody back on the floor, the Razorbacks opened the second half with a 13-5 run to take a 44-40 lead. Center Connor Vanover led the charge with two baskets in the paint and a 3-point jumper.

After the Tigers clawed back to take a 51-49 lead, the Razorbacks scored nine straight points to build a 58-51 margin.

With Dru Smith hitting two 3-point jumpers, Missouri countered with a 9-2 surge to tie the game 60-60.

After Vanover put the Razorbacks up 71-66, the Tigers forced overtime with a 7-2 run. Missouri forward Parker Braun scored the game-tying basket, then blocked the potential game-winning shot by Davonte Davis.

But the Razorbacks won the overtime 13-8 with Smith and Moody combining for 10 points.
