Four-years ago today: Mizzou knocks off Marquette with two English FT’s, advances to Sweet 16 en route to Elite 8

Don’t worry Missouri fans, this will cheer you up after yesterday’s first round loss to Colorado St. From the archives, freshman Kim English capped off a then career-game with two free throws after spending the majority of the second half on the bench, with 5.5 seconds remaining when he came in for an injured JT Tiller after a foul. English scored 17 points in just 12 minutes, scoring 15 in a 4 ½-minute scoring frenzy in the first half. The win propelled 3-seeded Missouri into the West Regional semifinals in Phoenix against No. 2-seeded Memphis.
