Mizzou was down 42-20 at halftime.

After Missouri made its run at the beginning of the second half, "we came back to the huddle and kept encouraging guys", Cofer said.

But give them some credit: the Tigers didn't fold. The play by Porter helped spark a 10-1 run to draw the score to 43-30 with 17:13 left in the second half. "We have to be better at whom we are than the team we're playing against".

Sure enough, Mizzou didn't have enough in the tank to climb the rest of the mountain. "I've got to do what's best for me". Porter had the ball stolen from him with 7:55 left in the first half and followed that up just over a minute later with an airball on a jumper. "The last couple games, I didn't play free and I was just thinking too much".

One player who did admit to being gassed was Jontay's older brother. Even with the addition of Michael Porter Jr.

Rust was to be expected, but it was unavoidable to notice that during the first half's ugliest moments, no Tiger looked more lost than the one that was expected to put the squad on his shoulders just a few short months ago.

But the 18-year-old boy that fans and National Basketball Association executives fawned over since he dunked from a step inside the free throw line as a high school sophomore couldn't save his team from itself. Was this star-caliber player folding under the pressure?

"Just like me deciding to reclassify here it will be a win-win regardless of what I do", he said. "I don't care about criticism. This is not a feeling I want to feel again".

FSU was buoyed by contributions from forward P.J. Savoy (12 points) and guard Braian Angola (8 points and three assists) as 10 Seminoles scored while wearing down Mizzou.

"I'm feeling fine", Mann said after the game.

The expectation is that he'll go.

"One day we'll be the last team standing", he said.

The victor of Saturday's 2:30 p.m. (St. Louis time) game at Stanford plays Monday against the victor of No. 4 seed Stanford against No. 13 Gonzaga. "The season overall is moments like this where it hurts and highs". White pulled down a game-high 10 rebounds. Missouri's improved effort on the defensive side became apparent as well, as the team became more aggressive in getting around the Seminoles off-ball screens, contested more shots and even forced two shot clock violations. While Missouri was continued to battle, the writing was on the wall: The Tigers were done. That doesn't mean there wasn't value in the distance traveled.

"I think this team will be remembered as far as turning things around, given our past few seasons", Kevin Puryear said. We're going to take some time because there's a lot of emotion right now. He thinks they'll make a run next year.
