No. 13 Xavier beats Purdue in OT on last second free throw

Edmond Sumner’s free throw with 0.3 of a second left in overtime gave No. 11 Xavier an 83-82 victory Thursday over Missouri in opening round of the Tire Pros Invitational in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. 

Sumner was fouled by Missouri’s Terrence Phillips along the sideline, after the Musketeers inbounded the ball near midcourt. He missed the first free throw short, then rattled in the second one for the win. 

Sumner and J.P. Macura scored 19 points each for Xavier (3-0). Frankie Hughes scored 24 points for Missouri (1-1).
