The 24th ranked Mizzou men’s basketball team scored the fewest points all season, yet shot 50% from the field, as the Tigers improved to 10-0, holding off Western Michigan 66-60 on Sunday evening at Mizzou Arena.
Jabari Brown led the Tigers with 15 points. Tony Clarkson and Earnest Ross added 12 apiece and Tony Criswell came off the bench to finish with 10 points. The Tigers turned the ball over 14 times, but managed to hold the Broncos to just 30% shooting (21 of 69).
Jonathan Williams III had seven rebounds and four blocked shots in 29 minutes of play. The 6’9 freshman scored two points and had three offensive boards.
Mizzou will next play Saturday at Scottrade Center, when they face Illinois in the annual Braggin’ Rights game in St. Louis.
