No. 17 Missouri pulls away from Nebraska

BY foxsports • February 15, 2009

The first 20 minutes is just the warmup act for 17th-ranked Missouri. The real game starts in the second half, when the Tigers' frenetic full-court press has a way of eventually wearing down people.

DeMarre Carroll and reserve Matt Lawrence had 13 points apiece and Missouri hit seven of its first nine shots after the break, pulling away for a 70-47 victory over cold-shooting Nebraska on Saturday. During a five-game winning streak, the Tigers have been outscored by six points in the first half while outscoring opponents by 66 the rest of the way.
