COLLEGE STATION, Texas, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Bernard King scored a season-high 29 points and backcourt mate Bradley Jackson hit the tie-breaking jumper with two seconds left Wednesday night to give the Texas A&M Aggies a 73-71 victory over the 21st-ranked Missouri Tigers.

The victory ended the Aggies' (12-8, 4-5 Big 12) six-game losing streak to the Tigers.

Facing a 66-64 deficit with 2 1/2 minutes left, Texas A&M took the lead on a three-pointer by freshman Antoine Wright.

Missouri tied the game at 71-71 on Travon Bryant's three-pointer with 32 seconds left, but Jackson answered with a jumper from the right side of the lane.

The Tigers' inbounds pass was intercepted and A&M's two-game losing streak was over.

Arthur Johnson scored 18 points for the Tigers (14-6, 5-4), who fell to 2-5 on the road.
