Missouri guard Kim English (24) puts up a shot over the reach of Marquette guard Jerel McNeal. English came off the bench to score 17 points in Missouri’s 83-79 victory over Marquette on Sunday in Boise, Idaho.
Four unbelievable minutes. Two gargantuan free throws. Freshman Kim English came off the bench to “pinch shoot” for the hurting J.T. Tiller and made two free throws with 5.5 seconds left Sunday to give Missouri the go-ahead points in an 83-79 victory over Marquette. It was quite an encore for English, who had an out-of-body 41⁄2-minute shooting spree in the first half, scoring 15 points and helping third-seeded Mizzou (30-6) turn a six-point deficit into a 16-point lead.
