COLUMBIA - The University of Missouri Men's Basketball Team topped Southeast Missouri State 65-61 on Tuesday night.

The Tigers trailed for the entirety of the game until freshman D'Angelo Allen buried his first career 3-pointer with four minutes left to put Missouri up 57-55.

Johnathan Williams III led the way for the Tigers, recording a double-double with 18 points and 11 rebounds.

The team was without sophomore point guard Wes Clark who was suspended for a violation of team rules, as well as Jakeenan Gant because of ongoing eligibility issues. This left the Tigers with only 9 scholarship players available.

Missouri's record now sits at 4-3 with a match up looming against 22nd ranked Oklahoma on Friday, December 5.
