KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jason Clark hit three 3-pointers in overtime, lifting No. 16 Georgetown to a bruising 111-102 victory Tuesday night over No.  9 Missouri, which erased an 18-point halftime deficit but faltered at the free-throw line in the final seconds of regulation.

After Michael Dixon hit one free throw with 14.1 seconds left to give Missouri a 94-91 lead, Chris Wright's 3-pointer tied the matchup of unbeatens at 94.

Austin Freeman had 31 points for the Hoyas, who are 7-0 for the second straight season. Missouri (5-1) trailed throughout the game until Marcus Denmon hit a 3-pointer for a 77-75 lead that had the capacity crowd in Kansas City's Sprint Center roaring.

Denmon had 27 points for Missouri, which missed three of four free throws in the final 19 seconds of regulation. The Hoyas were 18-of-18 from the line.

Dixon, who missed the only shot he took in the first half, sparked the second-half surge and finished with 17 points.

Ricardo Ratliffe had 22 points for the Tigers.

NO. 7 UCONN 62, NEW HAMPSHIRE 55: Kemba Walker had 30 points and the host Huskies (6-0) returned from their triumphant trip to Hawaii with a harder-than-expected victory.

NO. 8 SYRACUSE 78, CORNELL 58: Rick Jackson had 17 points and 13 rebounds for the host Orange (7-0), which won its 33rd straight game in the series.

NO. 10 KENTUCKY 91, BOSTON U. 57: Brandon Knight had 23 points as the host Wildcats (5-1) bounced back from their first loss of the season.

NO. 13 TENN. 86, MIDDLE TENN. 56: Tobias Harris had 21 points and Scotty Hopson 19 for the host Vols (6-0), who opened with an 8-0 run and trailed only once.

NO. 20 ILLINOIS 79, UNC 67: Mike Davis had 20 points to lead five players finish in double figures for the host Illini (7-1) in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

NO. 25 NOTRE DAME 81, INDIANA ST. 72: Ben Hansbrough had 19 of his 24 points in the second half to lead the host Irish (8-0), off to their best start in their 11 seasons under coach Mike Brey.

INDIANA: Guy-Marc Michel, a 7-foot center, was declared ineligible by the NCAA after the governing body determined he had enrolled at a French university in 2006, which started the five-year window in which he could compete at the Division I level.


MIAMI 86, OLE MISS 73: Durand Scott had 27 points for the host Hurricanes (5-2), who rebounded after blowing most of a 30-point halftime lead.
