Mizzou ended a 13 game losing streak, the longest in school history against a Florida team missing its two leading scorers, but that's not important right now.

What's important is Mizzou Basketball, faced with giving Billy Donovan career win #500, refused to be a footnote in another man's record book. They didn't always play consistently, but lead by the the breakout performance of freshman #12 Namon Wright, they were able to scrap back from a first half deficit and overcome their own mistakes and as Kim Anderson keeps saying, having something go their way.

Namon Wright was a blistering 28 points from the field and broke the season scoring record of 27 held by Johnathan Williams III.

It started in the first half, including this dunk:

Jakeenan Gant played a big role himself, having several key blocks and this smashing dunk
