It’s been 1,094 days since Missouri’s last road win

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

NCAA Basketball: Missouri at Mississippi State Matt Bush-USA TODAY Sports

The streak lives! Mizzou led Mississippi State at halftime last night, then got run the hell over.

  • First 18 minutes: Mizzou 41, MSU 32
  • Last 22 minutes: MSU 57, Mizzou 33

The 89-74 loss means Missouri still has yet to win a road game under Kim Anderson.

Mizzou’s last road win, as if you needed to be reminded, was at Arkansas on January 28, 2014. That was 1,094 days ago. In two days, it will have been exactly three years.

I’ve said “We know where this is headed” approximately 1,094 times this season, and ... well ... we know where this is headed. But it would really stink if Kim Anderson’s tenure as Mizzou head coach ended with zero road wins. It would be staggering, really.

Remaining road wins and KenPom win probability:

  • Feb. 2 at Florida: 2%
  • Feb. 8 at Texas A&M: 12%
  • Feb. 18 at Tennessee: 7%
  • Feb. 25 at Ole Miss: 16%
  • Mar. 4 at Auburn: 15%

From an odds standpoint, there’s only a 57% chance the Tigers lose all five of those games. Feels like 97%.

More on last night (if you dare) from, The Trib, Post-Dispatch, KC Star, The Missourian, and PowerMizzou.
