Late night tip off for the Ole RMN crowd but the youngsters should take us home to victory, eh? Thanks to Armchair Analyst for providing our visual commentary. Well done!

What: Mizzou Basketball
Who: Mizou Tigers (19-8) v South Carolina (13-14)
When: 8 p.m.
Where: Colonial Life Arena
TV: ESPN2 (Rece Davis - Play by Play / Bob Knight - Analyst)
Radio: Tiger Radio Network (Mike Kelly - Play by Play and Gary Link - Analyst)
Mizzou leads the series 1-0.
Factoids:
  • Pressey is the lone Tiger ever to play a complete season for Frank Haith and if you break down the numbers Missouri is getting 83.7 percent of its scoring and 92.3 percent of its rebounding from players that did not see action for the club last season.
  • Missouri is one win from its 20th victory of the season ... The Tigers have won 20+ games in four consecutive years and a fifth consecutive 20-win season would be a school record.
  • Head Coach Frank Haith is also one win shy of his 50th victory as the head coach at Missouri ... Haith would be the fastest coach to 50 wins in school history following last season’s 30-5 mark.
  • Trifecta hint - Keion Bell has been Missouri’s top performer on the road this year, averaging 15.9 points on 55 percent shooting.
  • Oriakhi is the first Tiger to average 8.0+ rebounds and shoot 70+ percent from the foul line since Doug Smith in 1990-91.
