Mizzou shot a putrid 22.7% from 3pt compared to Florida's 30.3%. However, Florida averages 39% from 3pt while Mizzou averages 33.8% so the comparative differences from the norm were 9% and 11%, respectively. The major difference is that Florida attempted 11 more 3's than Mizzou. Additionally, Mizzou was only 1.5% off from their normal FG% while Florida shot 8.6% below their average FG% and were 50% from the foul line (include at least 3 missed front-ends of 1-and-1's).
