Mizzou Men Out of Big 12 Tourney

1 decade 2 years 4 months ago Saturday, March 11 2006 Mar 11, 2006 Saturday, March 11, 2006 5:10:27 PM CST March 11, 2006 in Tiger Talk

The Cornhuskers (18-12) blew a 12-point lead in the second half, but White's 3-pointer from the right wing broke a 64-all tie. When Thomas Gardner missed a 3-pointer at the other end, White grabbed the rebound and Missouri didn't score again.

In what was likely the last game for interim coach Melvin Watkins, the Tigers trailed by as many as 12 points in the second half before Gardner's two free throws with 6:42 left pushed them ahead 58-57. That was their first lead since early in the game--and their last.

Jason Horton's 3-pointer put Missouri ahead 11-9 with 13:55 left in the first half, and the Tigers didn't lead again until Gardner's free throws at 6:42.

The Cornhuskers were up by six at halftime, and Nebraska won its first Big 12 Tournament game since 1999. The Cornhuskers also ended a three-game losing streak that included a 64-63 loss to Missouri (12-16) in the regular season finale last Sunday.

Missouri's first-ever loss in the opening round of the tournament ended the school's 100th season of basketball, one that didn't provide any reason for celebration.

Jason Dourisseau led Nebraska with 20 points on 8 of 12 shooting, including a slam dunk and a free throw after being fouled with 24 seconds left. Aleks Maric finished with 19 points on 7 of 10 shooting.

Jimmy McKinney had 15 points and Gardner 13 for the Tigers, who had consecutive losing seasons. Before last year, they finished under .500 only once since their last back-to-back losing seasons in 1978-79 under former coach Norm Stewart. Coach Quin Snyder resigned Feb. 10, a day after he vowed to finish his seventh season. The first four ended in the NCAAs before NIT appearances the last two years. Snyder said Gary Link, an assistant to Athletic Director Mike Alden, told Snyder MU would fire him after the season.
