Mizzou mens basketball coach Mike Anderson is always preaching about playing 40 minutes of basketball. His team found out the hard way just how true that is. The Tigers dominated Iowa State for more than 30 minutes of the Big 12 opener for both teams, leading by 13 midway through the second half. But it all came undone as MU got careless with the basketball and the Cyclones Wesley Johnson went to work.
Johnson recorded a double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds, but it was his tip-in with 1.6 seconds to play that gave ISU a 66-65 win Saturday night.
Marshall Brown led the way for the Tigers with 19 points and Stefhon Hannah chipped in with 17. The loss was the first conference opening defeat for Mizzou in nine years.
