COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) For a struggling Missouri men’s basketball team, even an NCAA record-breaking night wasn’t enough for a win.
After sinking 31 straight free throws in its weekend loss to Alabama, the Tigers (9-9, 1-5 Southeastern Conference) continued their streak with 23 foul shots in a row against Texas A&M on Tuesday night. The 54 consecutive free throws broke the NCAA record of 50 set by Wake Forest in 2005.
But it wasn’t enough - Josh Nebo and his 14 points overpowered a sloppy Missouri team to a 66-64 Aggies' win.
