FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Abdul Ado’s tip-in with 0.6 seconds left was his only basket of the game and the game-winner for Mississippi State, which slipped past Arkansas 78-77.

Mason Jones, who scored a game-high 38 points, had given Arkansas a one-point lead after a pair of free throws with 59 seconds left.

On the other end, Tyson Carter, who led Mississippi State with 26 points, attempted an off-balance layup with two seconds left that rimmed out, but onto Ado’s fingertips for his game-wining tip.
