Mizzou basketball tries to return the favor with a win on the road tonight as the Tigers battle the third place Georgia Bulldogs, who beat Mizzou 70-64 in overtime, snapping a 26-home game winning streak for the Tigers. Mizzou is looking to snap a three-game losing streak on the road, which included the underwhelming performance at Alabama this past Saturday.
The one high note in an up and down season for the Tigers has been Jabari Brown. He has been in double figures in each of the team’s 27 games this year and topped 20 points for the 10th time in 14 league games with 23 points and five assists at Alabama on Saturday. Brown leads the SEC in scoring (21.9) and three-point percentage (.468) and is ranked among the league’s Top six in five categories.
Missouri is one of seven teams currently tied for fourth in the league with a 7-7 record. Can the Tigers break through the deadlock in the middle of the conference.
We preview tonight’s game with Adam Stillman of the Jefferson City Tribune.
