Floor-level highlights: Mizzou’s furious second-half comeback falls short

After finding themselves down by as much as 18 in the first half, Mizzou stormed to grasp a lead late in the second half against Georgetown Tuesday night in Kansas City. Unfortunately for the Tigers, they couldn’t hold that lead, and a few mistakes late allowed Georgetown to force overtime on Chris Wright’s backbreaking three-pointer with 0.3 seconds remaining.
While the outcome didn’t favor Mizzou, the atmosphere at Sprint Center was that of an intense late-season conference game or an NCAA Tournament game. And, on the floor, Mizzou and Georgetown produced what may go down as the best college basketball game of the 2010-2011 regular season, even with four months of games still to be played.
