"Florida State can go on runs and score a bunch of points in a hurry," said Missouri coach Robin Pingeton. "We didn't attack enough and missed some open shots. On defense they are very good. We never looked fluid on offense."
"It helps that you now have veteran kids who have been through this. We're experienced but we're still pretty young," Pingeton said. "We understand it is survive and advance but it is a fine line between playing not to lose and playing to win. We have to enjoy the moment."
