All 11 Missouri players scored and all but one had a rebound as the Tigers outrebounded Iowa State 55-35 in an 87-54 win Saturday night at Mizzou Arena.
All of Missouri’s starters scored in double figures while holding Iowa State to a paltry 27% shooting (19 of 70). Ricardo Ratliffe matched his career best with six blocked shots and Michael Dixon had 15 points with three 3-pointers. Marcus Denmon scored 13 points, Ratliffe and Kim English added 12 apiece and Justin Safford had 11.
The Tigers weren’t particularly efficient themselves in the first half despite jumping out to a 22 point lead at the intermission. The Tigers committed nine turnovers were just 5 of 14 from three point range. The Tigers are 3-0 in Big 12 play at home, but have lost two on the road with the next two on the schedule away from Mizzou Arena.
