(COLUMBIA, Mo.) When the Tigers traveled to Gainesville earlier this season, they left after suffering a 31-point drubbing.
On Tuesday, Missouri continued their Mizzou Arena magic, defeating No. 5 Florida 63-60 to keep their perfect home record in tact.
It was a comeback effort for the Tigers (19-7, 11-2) as they had to erase a 13-point deficit in the second half to pull off the upset. Laurence Bowers hit a turnaround jumper with 1:15 left to give Missouri a 61-60 lead they would hold onto. He led the team with 17 points and 10 rebounds.
Jabari Brown added 12 points, while Earnest Ross poured in 11.
The Tigers get back on the road Saturday when they head to Kentucky.
