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.
