DeMarre Carroll scored a career high 31 points to go along with nine rebounds as the Missouri Tigers move to 7-2 in the Big 12 and 20-4 overall following their 82-68 win over Iowa State in Ames.

Carroll’s 31 is the first time the Tigers have had a player score 30 or more on the road since Clarence Gilbert did it in 2002.

Once again the Tigers got off to a fast start jumping out to a 13-4 lead in the first five minutes of the game.  Iowa State would go on littel spurts here and there at one time closing to within two late in the first half, but Mizzou went into the locker room up 37-31.

Carroll was on very early hitting from the outside and pounding the ball inside.  Carroll was 7 of 8 in the first half and on his only miss, he got the offensive rebound and put the ball back in.

The Cyclones would never get closer than six in the second half and the Tigers used an 8-0 run to extend their lead to 61-44 and from there the Tigers were in control.

Mizzou shot 57% for the game and had 28 assists on 35 shots made.
