Missouri won 81-78 after a desperation 3-pointer by Ayo Dosunmu was off the mark.
The Tigers went up three after a controversial call in the final minute. Missouri was awarded a flagrant foul call on this play, inwhich a Missouri player appeared to draft Kofi Cockburn’s arm into his face:

Mizzou hit one of two free throws, making it a three-point game. After the Illini got a stop, Dosunmu tried to draw a foul on a 3-point attempt but didn’t get the call.
The result is a third straight loss in this series for Illinois.
Overall, Illinois is 4-2 this season with a road win over Duke. The other loss came against No. 2 Baylor earlier this month.
Illinois will start Big Ten play against Minnesota on Dec. 15.
