AMES, Iowa (AP)—Zaire Taylor drove the length of the floor and banked in a layup at the buzzer to lead Missouri past Iowa State 69-67 in overtime Tuesday night.

J.T. Tiller tied a season high with 17 points and Marcus Denmon added 16 for the Tigers (22-8, 10-5 Big 12), who won for the fourth time in five games.

Missouri’s Michael Dixon hit a layup off a Denmon block to tie it at 65 with 1:48 left in OT. Taylor then answered a Marquis Gilstrap layup with a jumper with 11.5 seconds left.

Iowa State (14-16, 3-12) then turned it over under the basket, setting up Taylor’s acrobatic winner.

Gilstrap led five Iowa State players in double figures with 15 points and 13 rebounds. The Cyclones have lost eight of nine.
