Crafton’s free throw lifts MU past Mississippi in OT

OXFORD, Miss. — Sydney Crafton hit the game-winning free throw with :01.7 remaining Sunday to send the Missouri Tigers to a 73-72 overtime victory against Mississippi.

Crafton (Jefferson City High School) finished with 13 points, five rebounds and five assists in the victory, Missouri’s first-ever Southeastern Conference win on the road.
