COLUMBIA, Missouri (Ticker) -- Royal Ivey continued his flair for the dramatic.
After Brian Boddicker forced overtime with a 3-pointer, Ivey scored 10 of his 24 points in the final 3 1/2 minutes to lead 14th-ranked Texas to a 75-69 Big 12 Conference victory over Missouri.
The Longhorns have relied on Ivey in close games this season and the senior has come through. He made a 3-pointer to force overtime on January 5 in a win over Providence and a game-winning shot Saturday against Nebraska.
"Royal has been around a long time," Texas coach Rick Barnes said. "Everybody thinks he's the least heralded guy coming in and the bigger the stakes, the better he is."
Ivey again came through against Missouri, dominating the extra period. He put Texas (12-2, 3-0 Big 12) ahead for good with a pair of free throws with with 2:48 remaining.
Ivey added two free throws before sinking a pair of jumpers, including as decisive shot from the left baseline with 47 seconds remaining.
"I wasn't shooting the jump shot and free throws like I practiced them (in regulation)," he said. "I started shooting them like I practiced them and they went in."
Brandon Mouton scored 13 points for the Longhorns, who have won the last six meetings with the Tigers.
Rickey Paulding scored 15 of his 20 points after halftime but missed a pair of crucial free throws down the stretch for Missouri (7-7, 2-2), which lost for the seventh time in 10 games.
Paulding made 1-of-2 free throws with 71 seconds left in regulation to give the Tigers a 59-58 edge and drove around Mouton for a dunk 42 seconds later.
Ivey drove into the lane on Texas' last possession, but Missouri center Arthur Johnson blocked the shot to Boddicker, who buried a 3-pointer from the left wing with 6.7 seconds left.
"When I saw (Johnson) block the shot I kind of knew it was over but somehow Boddicker was standing right there and the ball came right to him and he just picked it up," Tigers guard Jimmy McKinney said.
Paulding missed a 3-pointer as time expired and finished 0-for-5 from the arc.
