COLUMBIA, Mo.(AP) -- Reserve Miguel Paul scored a career-best 15 points with 10 coming during a 15-1 second-half run that helped Missouri put away Nebraska 70-53 on Saturday night.

Justin Safford added nine points and 11 rebounds and Zaire Taylor had 12 points for the Tigers (15-4, 3-1 Big 12), who won their 31st in a row at home.

Sek Henry had 15 points and Brandon Richardson added 11 points and five assists for Nebraska (12-7, 0-4), which kept the score close most of the game by forcing Missouri into a half-court game.
