The Missouri Tigers will look to rebound from a conference-opening loss as the Tigers host Colorado at Mizzou Arena on Wednesday in a nationally-televised contest on ESPNU.
The Tigers scored a season-low 51 points on Saturday, but have found their home court to be much more appealing, averaging just under 90 points while going10-0 at home this season.
Missouri has won 11 consecutive home games dating back to last season, which is just two wins off the Mizzou Arena record … The Tigers won 13 straight over the 2006-07 / 2007-08 seasons before a home loss to Kansas ended that run last winter.
Despite the tough loss on Saturday, Missouri is still off to its best start (13-3) since the 1994-95 season … A win on Wednesday would push Missouri’s record to 14-3 and have them just two wins off their win total from the entire 2007-08 campaign.
Mizzou will be without senior forward Leo Lyons who is second on the team averaging 14 points per game. Look for junior forward Keith Ramsey to start. He leads the club with blocked shot with 14 this season.
