What: Mizzou Basketball
Who: Alcorn State Braves at Missouri Tigers
When: 7:00 p.m. CT
Where: Mizzou Arena (15,061)

TV: Mizzou Sports Network (Chris Gervino, Scotty Highmark)
Radio: Tiger Radio Network

For the second of three pre-Atlantis tuneups, Mizzou welcomes Luther Riley's Braves to town. Here's to a 2-0 start...

Likely Mizzou Starters
Phil Pressey (5'11, 175, Sr.)
Keion Bell (6'4, 200, Sr.)
Earnest Ross (6'5, 222, Jr.)
Laurence Bowers (6'8, 227, Sr.)
Alex Oriakhi (6'9, 255, Sr.)

Likely ASU Starters
Martrevious Sanders (5'11, 175, Sr.)
Anthony Nieves (6'4, 185, Sr.)
LeAntwan Luckett (6'5, 180, So.)
Ian Francis (6'8, 225, Sr.)
Michael Starks (6'8, 230, Sr.)

Nieves and Luckett combined to score 33 for the Braves in their opener, a win over Oakwood. So it appears they're a backcourt-driven team. Analysis!
