COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - DeMarre Carroll and reserve Matt Lawrence
had 13 points apiece and No. 17 Missouri hit seven of its first
nine shots in the second half, pulling away for a 70-47 victory
over Nebraska on Saturday.
J.T. Tiller added 11 points and four assists and Marcus Denmon
had 10 points for Missouri (22-4, 9-2 Big 12), which won its 17th
in a row at home and capitalized on momentum built from a two-point
victory over No. 16 Kansas five days earlier.
The Tigers have won nine of 10 since losing by five points in
the Big 12 opener at Nebraska on Jan. 10, and unlike the first
meeting they dictated the tempo in the rematch.
Missouri has been dominant at home, winning by an average of
26.7 points, and the Tigers' full-court press hounded the
Cornhuskers (15-8, 5-5) into a season-worst 20 turnovers.
