COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri coach Kim Anderson is still tinkering with his coaching style in his third season at the Division-I level.At halftime of the Tigers 81-55 victory over Miami (Ohio) Tuesday, Anderson jumped his players in the locker rm.The idea of getting leads and then losing leads, thats not acceptable, Anderson said. We cant continue to do that. This team will only be as gd as how it reacts to adversity... Our margin of error isnt as great as some teams.The Tigers (5-3) seemed to react well, as Kevin Puryear scored 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds, and Russell Wds added 15 points and 10 rebounds, his first double-double of the season. He was 4 of 7 from the field and 7 of 8 from the free-throw line, well above his 56.5 percent season average.Coach (Anderson) just gave me the confidence, said Wds, who scored all of his points after halftime. Kevin (Puryear) kind of kept my head up. He just told me to keep playing, just keep fighting, and I just came out there and tired to go hard.Logan McLane made the first basket of the game just 19 seconds in, but Missouri answered with a 16-0 run, holding the RedHawks scoreless for 9:03.Michael Weathers 3-pointer with 106 remaining in the first half snapped the lengthy scoring drought and sparked a 23-7 run that gave the RedHawks a 25-23 lead approaching halftime. However, with 13 seconds remaining in the half, Terrence Phillips hit a 3-pointer to give Missouri a 26-25 halftime lead.That was definitely a big momentum bster for us in the second half, Puryear said of Phillips 3-pointer. I think that play carried over into the second half. We had a big a talk in the locker rm about knocking down shots and just not putting t much pressure on ourselves to knock down those shots.First halves have just not been our strength this year in that weve struggled offensively, sometimes, just not being able to be consistent, RedHawks coach John Cper said.Frankie Hughes picked up where Phillips left off, nailing a 3-pointer only 29 seconds into the second half. Hughes finished with 133 points.ddddddddddddMissouri came out of halftime on a 20-5 run and rarely let up, outscoring the RedHawks 55-30 in the second half.In the second half, they start off well and they score, and they punch us in the face, Cper said. Its almost as if we just couldnt handle it, couldnt answer it. A couple times, we were trying to get it all back in one possession. And then, they started dominating the offensive boards, they were getting the ball inside, and they were just more physical than we were at that point in the game.Michael Weathers had 12 points and four assists but fouled out with 5:49 seconds remaining. McLane finished with 12 points and five rebounds, and fouled out with 2:06 remaining. Marcus Weathers and Bruno Solomun each added 11 points and six rebounds.The RedHawks (4-5) committed 28 personal fouls, tying a season high. Missouri converted on 22 of 31 free-throw attempts, including 16 of 21 in the second half.Cullen VanLeer had 14 points, shting 4 of 7 from 3-point range, and Phillips finished with seven points, eight rebounds, six assists and five steals.BIG PICTUREMiami (Ohio): The RedHawks shot 34.3 percent from 3-point range in their first eight games, but struggled to find any rhythm against Missouri, making just 6 of 31 attempts, nearly half their season average. Meanwhile, Missouri made a season-high nine 3-pointers.Missouri: The Tigers 16-0 run to start the game is a gd sign for Missouri fans. The storyline of this young team this season has been an inability to recover from slow starts and pr shting stretches, but it displayed neither Tuesday.Hughes has scored 112 points in Mizzous so far, making the third-straight season a Tiger freshman has scored 100 in his first eight games.UP NEXTMiami (Ohio) hosts IUPUI Saturday. The Jaguars defeated the RedHawks 78-64 last season in Indianapolis.Missouri hosts Arizona Saturday. The Wildcats defeated the Tigers 88-52 last season in Tucson. ' ' '
