Columbia, MO (SportsNetwork.com) - With seven seconds remaining on the clock in regulation, Earnest Ross connected on a pair of free throws to give his Missouri Tigers the lead and the eventual 57-56 win over the Texas A&M Aggies in a Southeastern Conference showdown at Mizzou Arena.

Texas A&M shot 41.4 percent from the floor in the first half, including 5- of-13 from 3-point range, and took a 30-20 lead into the intermission. Missouri connected on a dismal 26.9 percent from the field in the period, and went just 1-of-8 from 3-point distance.

The Tigers made the run in the second half to come back by hitting 42.9 percent of their field goal tries in the frame, adding 19-of-23 from the free- throw line. The Aggies improved to 47.6 percent shooting in the half, but missed all five 3-point attempts and went just 6-of-8 from the charity stripe. Texas A&M took a one-point lead with 16 seconds left to play before Ross was given a trip to the foul line with seven ticks left to play.
