Transcript UH 84 Missouri 76 Houston's scrapping Cougars, fighting like cornered wildcats, upset Missouri's 7th ranked Tigers in double overtime to the tune of 84-76. Led by a driving Jack Foster and big Don Boldebuck, the weary Cougars grabbed the lead in the second half and led the rest of the way until Norman Stewart's goal just prior to the game ending horn. The Cougars again pulled into what appeared a safe lead in the first overtime period. But two quick field goals by Missouri, the last by Stewart with 4 seconds remaining, again tied it up. In the second overtime a series of free throws by Foster and Lopez plus buckets by Boldebuck and Bell pulled the Cougars out of reach. Foster drives past Tigers' Park and Reicher for lay-up shot.
