All football season long, our mantra was "just wait till basketball season", now i dont know what to wait for, football? Anyway, good luck remaining SEC teams. P.S. Please God, allow matty Mauk to be the next johny football.
Between the NCAA and the NIT, the SEC had six teams qualify for postseason tournament play. Four games in, half of them are already done. Missouri becomes the latest SEC squad to make a quick exit, falling to Colorado State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.
The Tigers trailed by nine at half and proceeded to cut the lead to four points early in the second half. They never got any closer.
Phil Pressey led Missouri with 20 points and seven assists.
- Colorado State doubled Missouri on the boards – outrebounding the Tigers 36-18.
-Missouri shot 42.1% from the field (24-57) while Colorado State shot 49% (25-51)
- Colorado State went to the free-throw line 14 times more than Mizzou – made 10 more (27 vs 17).
Missouri finishes the year 23-11; 17-0 at home and 6-11 in road/neutral court games.
