LOS ANGELES (AP) - Shabazz Muhammad hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with 1:01 left in overtime to help UCLA upset No. 7 Missouri 97-94 on Friday night and extend the Bruins' winning streak to five games.

Travis Wear, who finished with a career-high 22 points, added a jumper with 12 seconds left to close out the Bruins' first win over a top-10 non-conference opponent since 2007.

Phil Pressey missed a 3-pointer with 5 seconds to go before Laurence Bowers grabbed the rebound and missed a 3-pointer in front of the Tigers' bench as time expired.

Muhammad tied his career high with 27 points, David Wear scored 16, Jordan Adams had 12 and Larry Drew II added 12 assists for the Bruins (10-3). They came in 0-2 against ranked opponents this season after losing to Georgetown and San Diego State.

Pressey finished with 19 points and a career-high 19 assists, including all 12 of his team's in the first half, for the Tigers (10-2). Keion Bell and Bowers had 17 points each, Earnest Ross added 16 and Jabari Brown had 14.
