COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Jabari Brown scored 24 points and made a last-minute play to help Missouri hold off Tennessee 75-70 on Saturday.

With 7.7 seconds remaining and a 73-70 lead, Brown stole Jeronne Maymon's inbounds pass before Johnathan Williams III grabbed the ball and finished off the game's scoring with two free throws on the other end.

The Tigers (18-7, 6-6 SEC) needed all 60 minutes for the second consecutive contest to secure the win, following an 86-85 decision against Arkansas on Thursday. Missouri held a 13-point advantage with 11:05 remaining in the first half, but Tennessee quickly responded and pulled to within 41-37 at the break.

Jordan McRae finished with 31 points for the Volunteers (15-10, 6-6), but his 3-pointer with 10 seconds left missed. Tennessee ended with up with another chance that set up Brown's steal, though, as officials determined the rebound went out of bounds off a Missouri player.
