Mizzou Loses at the End

Four conference games were decided in the final 30 seconds, including MU's loss to Colorado.

It felt like deja-vu on Saturday in Mizzou Arena. The Tigers were tied with under 10 seconds left on the clock and the ball in their possession, with MU literally holding the outcome of the game in their own hands.

"You're not going to lose the game," said Head Coach Quin Snyder. "You're going to go to overtime if you take the last shot, which we were prepared to do and we had executed well up to that point."

But there was no happy ending for this fairly tale, as the Tigers lost their first conference game to the Colorado Buffaloes.

"It's tough, it's tough because all you got to do is get one bucket," said guard Jimmy McKinney.

Guard Thomas Gardner said, "As a leader, it's kinda hard not to put in on your shoulders, to turn the ball over with seven or eight seconds left and then they make a shot to win the game."

MU started conference play 2-0, but after the Tigers first home loss to Colorado in eight years, there's only one way to silence the doubters.

"Just win. When you win, you silence all that," said forward Marshall Brown. "I mean, we definitely will come in with a chip on our shoulder come Monday, and we definitely want to come in and win."

But the Tigers won't have long to dwell on their loss. It's a quick turn around to Monday's game against the rival Kansas Jayhawks.

"The key for our team is we've got to be resilient," Snyder said. "You can't get, as painful as this loss is, as much as you said hey this is a game we thought we had won, but we can't be living in yesterday, we've got to move forward."

McKinney said, "It's not big just because it's Kansas and Mizzou rival. It's big for us because we need victories, we need the win we need the w in this locker room so that we can really build on something that's special for us."

A win against KU will help show fans the Tigers may be a true contender for the Big 12 crown.

"People don't really believe, they don't believe but they kinda believe," McKinney said. "But we just got to get them on our side all the way."

The Tigers and Jayhawks play at 6:00 pm Monday night in Mizzou Arena. It's the first time in 15 years that the rivals have met when both teams are unranked.
