During the final minutes of the game, MU senior forward DeMarre Carroll watches the game from the sidelines. Carroll is one of four seniors who played their last collegiate game on Saturday against the Connecticut Huskies.
The top-seeded Huskies blew an early 11-point lead but survived against the frenetic third-seeded Tigers, who came back to grab a 50-49 lead with 13:35 to play. Leo Lyons, above, and Matt Lawrence each had 13 points for Missouri (31-7), which was denied its first Final Four berth. Four seniors played their last games as Tigers in Glendale, Ariz. on Saturday afternoon.
