The Gators had won 13 of 14 and led 49-36 with 10:51 left, then hurt themselves at the foul line.Florida missed five straight free throws in the second half, three times on the front end of one-and-ones. The Gators made six of 12 foul shots overall, while Missouri was 12 of 15.Florida attempted 33 threes in the game and had two looks from deep late in the game, one with Mizzou up 61-60, and the other coming on the final shot of the game rom the left corner as time expired, but missed both. During the first half of the game, the Associated Press reported that the NCAA issued a notice of allegations to the University of Miami citing a lack of institutional control. During halftime of the ESPN broadcast, Holly Rowe asked Mizzou AD Mike Alden if Haith had been issued any notice of allegations, but Alden said he had not at that moment in time.
