Missouri looks to fix problems exposed Saturday
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
COLUMBIA — If there was one thing that was clear to Missouri coach Frank Haith following the Tigers’ 64-49 loss Saturday to Mississippi, it was the Tigers didn’t handle adversity when it was tossed their way.
The Tigers fell behind 9-0 and never seemed to find an offensive rhythm without leading scorer Laurence Bowers.
Now the Tigers are searching for a way to fix some of the problems Mississippi exposed.
“You’ve got to be able to have a little bit of grit, and not go looking for help,” Haith said Monday. “You have to make things happen. Whether it be complaining about officiating or whatever, you’ve got to go play. You’ve got to attack.”
