COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Four overtimes meant more chances for Clarence Gilbert to shoot through his mistakes.
Gilbert kept firing during a 12-for-36 effort that shattered his career high with 43 points, then blocked a last-second shot in the final overtime as Missouri beat No. 18 Iowa State 112-109 Saturday.
It was the first four-overtime game in the four-year history of the Big 12.
"I'm just doing whatever it takes to win the ballgame," Gilbert said. "If it took 43 points or 50 or 60, I would have done it."
Gilbert, who entered averaging 16.8 points, surpassed his high of 32 points in a double-overtime loss to Iowa in December. He broke Willie Smith's 24-year-old school record for attempts.
Gilbert's three-pointer tied it at 101 with 18.2 seconds left in the third overtime.
Iowa State had the best chance to end it in the second overtime, but Paul Shirley threw up an air ball with about six seconds left and Brian Grawer stole the rebound from Martin Rancik under the basket.
Shirley hit a layup with 14 seconds left in the first overtime to tie it at 82. Shirley hit a free throw with 11.8 seconds left in regulation to force the first overtime.
