NCAA Basketball: Wagner at Missouri
Will Jordan Barnett still be excited after Missouri’s first road trip of the season?
Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Missouri (2-0) hits the road for the first time this season, and it will not only have to grapple with altitude but a Utah program looking to revert back to a team that’s contended for NCAA tournament bids. Michael Porter Jr. is still nursing a leg injury and stayed behind. So once again it’s a chance to for freshmen like Jeremiah Tilmon and veterans in Kevin Puryear and Jordan Barnett to lead the way.

Mizzou’s meeting with Wagner went about as you’d expect: the Seahawks collected a check, Mizzou got a rout and Cuonzo took The Antlers’ suggestions about playing walk-ons.
