COLUMBIA, Mo. — Kim English scored 19 points in the first half, Marcus Denmon added 13 after the break and Missouri had just enough to avoid a second straight upset with a shaky victory over Texas Tech 63-50.
Jaye Crockett had 11 points and 11 rebounds and Ty Nurse scored 13 for Texas Tech (7-13, 0-8 Big 12), which shaved a 15-point deficit to seven on Clark Lammert’s 3-pointer off the glass at the shot-clock buzzer with 2:36 to go.
Missouri (19-2, 6-2) finished with six straight points, including Ricardo Ratliffe’s dunk in transition with a minute left after English blocked a shot and then saved the ball from going out of bounds.
English had 22 points, Denmon scored 19 despite 4-for-15 shooting and Phil Pressey matched his career best with 12 assists. Missouri remained unbeaten at home, three days after an upset loss at Oklahoma State.

NO. 6 BAYLOR 76, TEXAS 71
WACO, Texas — Perry Jones III scored 22 points and grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds, Pierre Jackson hit the go-ahead 3-pointer and Baylor withstood a second-half rally to beat Texas.
Baylor (19-2, 6-2 Big 12) led by 12 early in the second half before J’Covan Brown led a charge that helped the Longhorns tie the game.
Jackson’s 3-pointer gave the Bears a 69-66 lead with 2:36 left, and they hit seven free throws down the stretch to seal the victory.
Brown scored 20 of his 32 points in the second half  (13-8, 3-5), but he missed a 3-point attempt with 10 seconds left that would have tied the game. The Longhorns have lost four of five.
Quincy Miller had 18 points for the Bears, who are 6-2 in conference play for the first time since 1986-87. Quincy Acy added 10 points and 10 rebounds.
