COLUMBIA, Mo. — Justin Smith scored 19 points to lead Arkansas to an 86-81 overtime victory over 10th-ranked Missouri.

Smith, who had missed the Razorbacks’ loss to Missouri last month with an injury, led a balanced attack.

Moses Moody scored 15 and Jalen Tate added 14 for Arkansas (16-5, 8-4 Southeastern Conference).

Missouri standout forward Jeremiah Tilmon missed the game because of a death in the family.

Tilmon had 25 points and 11 rebounds in the teams’ previous meeting, and without him, the Tigers leaned heavily on 3-pointers, making 13 of 32 from beyond the arc.

Missouri will travel to Athens, Georgia to take on Georgia (12-8, 5-8 Southeastern Conference) on Tuesday evening at 5:30 p.m.
