KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Quinton Pippen hit a one-handed, running jumper in the lane with 1.5 seconds on the clock, lifting Chicago State to a 68-66 victory over Missouri-Kansas City on Saturday.

Pippen scored a career-high 23 points as the Cougars (7-9, 2-0 Western Athletic Conference) battled to the win in a game that saw eight lead changes and two ties down the last 9:32.

Matt Ross scored 19 for Chicago State and Clarke Rosenberg 15. The trio combined for all of the Cougars seven 3-pointers.

Nelson Kirksey led the Kangaroos (5-10, 2-1) with 17 points but missed a 16-footer at the buzzer after Pippen's runner. Martez Harrison and Frank Williams Jr. scored 14 each and Fred Chatmon added 11 with 15 rebounds for UMKC.

Each team made 24 field goals and seven 3-pointers, but the visiting Cougars went 13-for-19 at the free-throw line to UMKC's 11-20.
