Missouri Jumpers Beat Furman

1 decade 3 years 7 months ago Wednesday, April 05 2006 Apr 5, 2006 Wednesday, April 05, 2006 1:06:41 PM CDT April 05, 2006 in Tiger Talk

That patience paid off and McKinney hit jumpers on back-to-back possessions with less than five minutes left to help Missouri edge Furman 72-63.

"The things that he scored in were set plays for him," Snyder said. "We went to him, which should tell him a lot about how I feel about him when you're 0-for-10 and your coach calls your number back to back."

McKinney's second jumper with 3:21 left gave Missouri (4-3) the lead for good, and Jason Horton hit a 3-pointer to extend the Tiger advantage to 65-60 with 1:53 left.

"That was the difference in the game. They stepped up and made two jump shots, and we didn't take care of our opportunities," Furman coach Larry Davis said.

Furman had a couple of chances to tighten the game with less than a minute to go, but Eric Webb's 3-point attempt fell short for the Paladins, and Robby Bostain missed a layup.

"We have been in a funk as a team for about the last two weeks, and in the second half began to come out of it," Davis said. "Toward the end of the game when it got a little close, as a coach, all I could ask was to get the kind of shots we got. Those shots go and all of a sudden it's a different ball game, probably."

Thomas Gardner led Missouri with 20 points, and Horton added 13. McKinney, who had seven points on 2-for-12 shooting from the floor, said he appreciated Snyder's confidence late in the game.

"He knows that I can knock down those shots," McKinney said. "I should have been knocking down those shots the whole game, but they just weren't falling for me. It's definitely frustrating, but I kept my focus and I was trying to smile and be like, 'Man, it's going to fall. It's going to fall sooner or later."'

Bostain led Furman (4-4) with 18 points and eight rebounds. Webb, who entered the game as the Paladins' leading scorer, finished with eight points.
