08:16 AM ET 03.22 | Prior to taking on Colorado State in the first round, Missouri coach Frank Haith ticked off the usual fundamentals: taking charges, guard play, effort plays. But he ended the list with perhaps the most crucial item. "There's no question rebounding is a big part of it, too," he added. Turns out, Haith was right. ... Colorado State outrebounded Missouri by 23 on the way to an 84-72 win. "I think they were just way more aggressive in searching out loose balls," Haith said. "I wish we would've been more passionate about rebounding, because that's what it is. It's about desire." ... "I thought they were the most aggressive team," Haith said. "They really went after us."
