NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Marcus Denmon scored 17 of his 19 points after halftime and hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 61 seconds to play Friday night as No. 8 Missouri survived a scare against Old Dominion with a 75-68 victory.
Kim English added 16 points for the Tigers (13-0), who continued their best start since opening 19-0 in 1981-82. They got all they could handle in their first true road game under first-year coach Frank Haith from the Colonial Athletic Association power.
Old Dominion (6-7) was spurred on by a raucous sellout crowd and able to match the Tigers physically. The game was tied 67-all before Denmon hit his fourth 3-pointer with 1:01 to go. He added both ends of a one-and-one with 42 seconds left to make it 72-67.
Kent Bazemore led Old Dominion with 16 points and Trian Iliadis had 15.
Denmon, who missed all three of his 3-point attempts in the first half, hit four after the break -- three in the first 3 minutes -- as the Tigers came out of the locker room with a 20-9...
