Leo Lyons scored 16 of his 22 points in the second half and Missouri overcame a 13-point deficit over the final 10 minutes for a 66-62 win over Colorado on Saturday. The Tigers (12-8, 2-3), snapped a three-game losing streak and a five-game road skid.
The Buffs lead by 10 at the half, thanks to Marcus Hall who scored 20 of his 28 points in the first half on 8-of-9 shooting, including 4-of-5 from three-point range. The Tigers chipped away at the lead the whole second half and didn’t get their first lead until about two minutes to play when Matt Lawrence hit a three pointer to put Mizzou up 61-60.
The Tigers next play at home on Wednesday against Nebraska.
