Missouri faces a unique, exciting test against Stephen F. Austin tonight

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

The real games begin again tonight for Mizzou Hoops when Stephen F. Austin comes to town (8:00 p.m. CT, ESPNU).

Yes, the Lumberjacks are only 138th in the country per KenPom, and yes, Mizzou is projected to have an 85 percent chance of victory. But SFA is already 1-1 in the SEC and forces turnovers more frequently than any team in the country (and Mizzou commits them at a high rate itself).

This should be an excellent test.

Oh yeah, and per, it’s Teddy Bear Toss night.

On top of bringing excitement and holiday spirit to Zouville, fans are encouraged to bring a new teddy bear or other stuffed animal that will be part of the Inaugural Teddy Bear Toss at Mizzou Arena. At the start of halftime, those in attendance will be asked to toss their stuffed toy onto the court. All toys will be donated to the children at the MU Women's & Children's Hospital this holiday season.

Guessing we know what happens next (besides Bakare charging his phone).

  • 11 straight for Mizzou Women’s Hoops. The No. 16 Tigers finished the West Palm Invite with a second win in as many days, trouncing Xavier by a 74-48 margin. They led by 12 at half, then put the game away with a 19-3 run.
