— Mike Anderson's return to Bud Walton Arena ended a little sooner than he wanted.

"I don't think our guys lost," Anderson said. "They just ran out of time."

Charles Thomas scored 21 points and defended two last-second 3-pointers by Missouri, helping Arkansas hold off the Tigers, 94-91, Wednesday night. Anderson, Missouri's coach, spent 17 seasons as an assistant at Arkansas.

Sonny Weems made two free throws with 15 seconds left to give Arkansas a three-point lead. With the 6-foot-8 Thomas defending, Missouri's Stefhon Hannah tried an off-balance 3-pointer that missed, but a jump ball was called on the rebound, and the possession arrow favored the Tigers.

After Arkansas (5-1) called time out to set up its defense, Darryl Butterfield took an inbound pass in the left corner. Apparently trying to draw a foul, Butterfield leaned into Thomas. There was no call, and his toss went nowhere near the basket.

No. 8 Texas 98, Texas Southern 61

Austin, Texas - Damion James had 19 points and 10 rebounds, and Texas ran its record to 6-0 for only the second time in coach Rick Barnes' 10 seasons.

Getting a seventh straight victory is likely to be much tougher: the Longhorns travel to California to play No. 2 UCLA on Sunday.

No. 9 Texas A&M; 76, Alabama 63

College Station, Texas - Donald Sloan had 15 points and a career-high eight assists to help Texas A&M; remain undefeated.

Alabama got within two points of the Aggies (7-0) early in the second half, but didn't get any closer.

Texas Tech 71, TCU 58

Lubbock, Texas - Martin Zeno scored 26 points to lead Texas Tech.

The Red Raiders came from behind after TCU used a 13-4 run early in the second half to go up 48-35. Then Tech crept back slowly.

There were eight ties and nine lead changes.
