COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Missouri Tigers rallied together to snap a nine game losing streak on Saturday afternoon, defeating the Tennessee Volunteers 75-64 during the Rally for Rhyan game. Missouri led for over 38 minutes, while the Volunteers struggled to keep the game close trailing the Tigers by as many as 14 at one point early in the second half.

Missouri turned the ball over 9 times in the first half, while the Tigers out rebounded the Vols 21-15. As a team Missouri shot 52.4 percent from the field, and freshman forward Kevin Puryear finished the half six points and four rebounds. At the half, Tenneessee trailed Missouri 38-27.

During halftime, Rhyan Loos’s father, Assistant Coach Brad Loos, came onto the court and thanked the crowd of 10,536 for their donations saying, “Thank you for helping us say to cancer, ‘when you picked a fight with Rhyan Loos, you messed with the wrong little girl.’” At the end of the day, proceedings for the #RallyforRhyan campaign that came from t-shirt sales and cash donations amounted to $50,000.

Tennessee came close to tying Missouri late in the game on a layup by Volunteer Devon Baulkman at the 1:25 mark to bring the Tigers lead down to four. However, the Tigers shot well from the free throw line and finished the game on a 7-0 run.

Senior forward Ryan Rosburg finished the day with 21 points and five rebounds, averaging 20.6 points and 7.6 rebounds the last three games. Puryear finished with 17 points, making six of his eight shots from the field.

Mizzou basketball next plays host to South Carolina on Tuesday, Feb. 18 at Mizzou Arena. Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m.
