Missouri 79 | Georgia 69

Final

First Half Notes

  • Javon Pickett walks onto the floor for the final time with mom and dad each donning #4 and arms interlocked. A special moment for a guy who given his all for this program.
  • Georgia jumps on Mizzou early, out to a 7-0 early run. Tigers seem a little shellshocked.
  • Might be the sloppiest 4 minutes of basketball Missouri has played this season.
  • Amari Davis with a tough and-one fadeaway jumper.
  • Ronnie DeGray 2/2 from behind the arc to start this game.
  • Turnovers continue to be very costly.
  • Kobe Brown picks up his second foul at the 7:11 mark, but remains in the game. He then picks up his third foul roughly a minute later.
  • Georgia’s Braelen Bridges already at his season average of 12.
  • Trevon Brazile with a monster block on a Dalen Ridgnal dunk attempt, his second of the game.
  • Tigers making a steady push as the half winds down.

Second Half Notes

  • Aaron Cook has controlled this game on both sides of the floor. Really shifty and can finish well around the rim.
  • Kobe Brown spins in a 3 to cut the lead to 5, the lowest it has been since early in the game.
  • Brown taking over, tacks on 4 more to cut the lead to 3.
  • In even more Kobe Brown news, he just picked up his 4th foul at the 12 minute mark.
  • Massive momentum shift as Mizzou ties the game, gets a stop, turns it over, then gets a charge.
  • Beautiful play to break the Georgia zone gives Mizzou their first lead of the game.
  • Tigers take a 6-point lead into the under eight timeout, have gained control of the game.
  • Kobe Brown coming back in to close the game out with a 10-point lead.
  • An around-the-back dime from Coleman to Kobe Brown is symbolic of the half both of them have been having.
  • Georgia making a late push but can’t capitalize at the charity stripe.
