The early lead set the table for everything that followed, and while Missouri fought back from poor starts on quite a few occasions this year, Colorado State was too mature, too smart, to let that work.
Not sure what I'm going to say about the game yet, so I won't say anything at all, at least other than "Congratulations, Larry Eustachy. May my team never play yours again so I never have to root against you again."
Bleeding clock only does one thing for certain: cut down the number of possessions for the offensive team. If you make it easy for the defense to get stops then push the ball down the floor you haven't done yourself any favors.
