Freshman Kim English came off the bench with 5.5 seconds left and made two free throws for the hurting J.T. Tiller to lift Missouri to an 83-79 victory over Marquette in the NCAA tournament Sunday.
English, who scored 15 points during an amazing 4 1/2-minute stretch in the first half, spent most of the second on the bench. But when Tiller got hurt driving to the basket, Missouri took advantage of the college rule that allows a team to substitute anyone for the injured player to take the free throws.
English calmly sank them to finish with 17 points. And when Lazar Hayward stepped over the baseline on the ensuing inbounds pass, Marquette was forced to foul. Leo Lyons made two more free throws to ice the game and Missouri moved onto the West Regional semifinals to play Memphis.
