Missouri 85, Mississippi State 66: Tigers' bigs dominate

Dak Dillon-USA TODAY Sports

Mizzou got a needed victory by getting contributions from almost everyone in the lineup. I dare say the freshman took a big step today.

Mizzou got back to its winning ways getting back to .500 in conference by beating up on an overmatched Mississippi State team 85-66 shooting 66% from the field.

Mizzou got contributions from up and down the line up with points from most everyone.  Keanu Post, Torren Jones and JW3 bringing blocks and an offensive explosion we’ve only just started seeing the past couple games.  It’s looking more and more like the big men are gaining confidence and finding their feet.

There were the constants, Jabari Brown in double figures, Clarkson with strong drives to the hole, Ross with corner threes, SEC "officiating" and Mizzou 3 point defense doing Mizzou 3 point defense things.

While it was only Mississippi State, but this was a needed victory, a balanced one and nice to see.

I leave it in your hands, Doctor Soyoye, what say you?
