The Missouri Tigers are having a difficult time in bouncing back from their first loss of the season as they trail Iowa State 38-36 at halftime.
The Tigers haven't been themselves offensively as Marcus Denmon and Phil Pressey combined to go 2-11 in the first half from the field for four points. Matt Pressey, Steve Moore and Michael Dixon all scored eight points to keep the Tigers close.
Missouri has had a difficult time bottling up Scott Christopherson who finished the half with a game-high 13 points. Chris Babb and Chris Allen each chipped in seven points for the Cyclones.
Frank Haith has to feel pretty good considering that his team is only down two points with neither Denmon nor Pressey being much of a factor.
