Tigers upset No. 5 Florida

Mizzou players celebrate after Tuesday's 63-60 upset win over No. 5 Florida.


COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Laurence Bowers had 17 points and 10 rebounds and Missouri erased a 13-point deficit in the second half to rally past No. 5 Florida 63-60 on Tuesday night.


Phil Pressey added 10 assists, seven points, six rebounds and three steals for Missouri (19-7, 8-5 SEC). The Tigers didn't have Bowers a month ago in a 31-point blowout loss at Florida.


Mike Rosario had 14 points for Florida (21-4, 11-2) but missed a 3-point try at the buzzer. The Gators had won 13 of 14 and led 49-36 with 10:51 left, then hurt themselves at the foul line.


Florida missed five straight free throws in the second half, three times on the front end of one-and-ones. The Gators made six of 12 foul shots overall, while Missouri was 12 of 15.


The Tigers improved to 15-0 at home this season. They are 30-1 the last two seasons under coach Frank Haith.
