RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Jabari Brown hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 55.1 seconds left to help No. 25 Missouri beat North Carolina State 68-64 on Saturday night.

Jordan Clarkson scored 21 points to lead the Tigers (11-1), including two free throws with 20.1 seconds left that pushed the lead to 65-62.

Brown finished with 17, helping Missouri hold on in its first true road game this year. Johnathan Williams hit a free throw with 3.7 seconds left to make it a two-possession game and effectively seal the win.

T.J. Warren scored 24 points to lead the Wolfpack (9-3), but didn't score for the final 12 minutes as N.C. State lost despite twice leading by 10 points.
