Top-ranked Kansas ran out of great escapes Tuesday night at Columbia, Mo.
Corey Tate picked up a loose ball near the free-throw line and scored with 5.6 seconds to go in the second overtime - and 2 seconds left on the shot clock - as Missouri handed the Jayhawks their first loss, 96-94.
Kelly Thames had 24 points and 11 rebounds and Derek Grimm had 20 points for Missouri (12-10, 4-6 Big 12). Grimm fouled out in the first overtime and Thames fouled out with 1:15 to go in the second overtime.
It was the second consecutive overtime game for Kansas, which has struggled lately with starting center Scot Pollard sidelined with a broken foot. Kansas (22-1, 8-1) survived an OT scare from Nebraska on Saturday and had close calls against Texas Tech and Colorado before that.
