COLUMBIA, Mo. - Johnathan Williams III scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds while Keith Shamburger converted four free throws in the final minute of overtime to help Missouri defeat LSU 74-67 in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams.

Missouri (7-7) improved to 1-5 against the five power conferences after scoring the final nine points of the game - the final seven on free throws - after LSU opened overtime with two of its own by Tim Quarterman.

Quarterman finished with 19 points while Keith Hornsby added 17 for LSU (11-3), which had its eight-game winning streak snapped.

The game featured 14 lead changes and seven ties, including one in the final minute of regulation. Hornsby's 3-pointer with 10 seconds left knotted the game at 65 before Clark's miss at the other end sent the game to overtime.

Missouri used a 14-2 run to gain a 60-56 lead with 3:33 remaining.
