Missouri is currently 0-4 in SEC play, but the team has racked up a ton of moral victories along thus far. Kim Anderson and the gang have continued to fight and in some aspects improve through their first 4 league games. Which is not something that could be said about the teams in the past. The biggest issue now lies in the team’s inability to knock down shots at a consistent rate. Mizzou has led at halftime in 3 of their 4 SEC games, but long scoring droughts have been detrimental. Don’t expect things to improve much as the face a very tough and well coached Alabama team on the road.

In case you’ve been under a rock the last 4 seasons, road games have not been Missouri’s friend. The Tigers are currently trying to end a 28-game road losing streak, which started during the Frank Haith era. Missouri is 3-31 in road games since the 2013-2014 season (Frank Haith’s final season).

Luckily, Missouri has always been a gymnastics school, otherwise this would be a rough winter.
