Missouri to face Oregon in Hardwood Series
Thursday, December 2, 2010
The Missouri Tigers don’t have a lot of time to think about Tuesday night’s 111-102 overtime loss to Georgetown.
They're back at it tonight when they take on the Oregon Ducks at 10 p.m. (Fox Sports Midwest-TV) in their fourth annual Big 12/Pac-10 Hardwood Series.
Missouri (5-1, ranked eighth) rallied back from an 18-point deficit against the Hoyas and took the lead in the second half. But the Tigers had trouble at the free-throw line in the final seconds of regulation, hitting only 1-of-4 from the charity stripe with 19 seconds left.
Oregon enters the contest at 4-2 under first-year coach Dana Altman, who coached 16 years at Creighton before heading west.
