Missouri Upsets No. 5 Florida, 63-60
The Missouri Tigers (19-7, 8-5) extended their unbeaten run at home to 15 straight games this season with an upset over the No. 5 Florida Gators (21-4, 11-2).
In a game that was full of streaks, the Tigers ended on a 10-3 run.
Phil Pressey stepped up and made some big plays for Mizzou as they solidified their spot in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament with their best win of the season.
Laurence Bowers was the star throughout the night for the Tigers as he scored 17 points and pulled down 10 rebounds.
The Gators were led by a 14-point performance from Mike Rosario but when it came down to the final shot, they just could not make it.
The Tigers now have an important SEC road trip ahead of them on Saturday when they take on Kentucky while Florida will host Arkansas on Saturday night.
