First Half Notes

  • Hustle plays going in the favor of Mizzou, DeGray and Brazile each saving possessions for Mizzou.
  • Sluggish start for both sides on the offensive end.
  • Couple of quick run-outs for MSU give them a 4-point lead.
  • Offensive rebounding is the main thing keeping Mizzou in the game at this point.
  • Iverson Molinar with an acrobatic and-one as he was falling to the floor.
  • Javon Pickett with a quick 9 points in the half.
  • Bulldogs extending their lead thanks to Mizzou’s cold shooting.
  • Boogie Coleman has a half-court shot spin in and out, symbolic of the first for the Tigers.

Second Half Notes

  • 2nd half starts similar to the first, Mizzou hustling and getting on the glass.
  • Kobe Brown sees the ball go in the basket at the free throw line, then gets a nice bounce on a hook shot.
  • An and-one for MSU puts them up 12, as shots just will not fall for Mizzou.
  • Mizzou showing no signs of life on offense with the Bulldog lead growing.
  • Another scoring drought, this one of nearly three minutes, plaguing Mizzou this half.
  • Bulldogs close out the half comfortably.
