Florida Mizzou KenPom

Florida has lost their last four games, and six of their last eight. So they aren't exactly coming in on a hot streak, but they're still 130 or so spots ahead of Missouri in the KenPom rankings. The Gators are a high octane team that struggles from 3-point range, but like to get out and run. They've got talent but have played inconsistently enough to be on the outside looking in of the NCAA bubble.

But this game is much more about Ryan Rosburg, and the fact that he is the only player to complete his Missouri career WITH Missouri since the signing class of 2008, yeah the class of Kim English, Lawrence Bowers, Marcus Denmon and Steve Moore. Rosburg has been a target for Mizzou fans over his career, but he's finally put it all together with just a few game remaining on the schedule, by averaging 15.5 points over his last eight games.

So take some time to say thanks to RyRos, and lets hope that he pulls off one last miracle and helps the Tigers upset the favored Gators today.
