Missouri has staggered a little out of the gates but they have a chance to right themselves at the aptly named Paradise Jam. The tournament takes place today through Monday in St. Thomas, and features Missouri with Kansas State, Oregon State, Penn, Northern Iowa, Old Dominion, Eastern Kentucky and the Tigers game one opponent the Owls of Kennesaw State.
The Owls enter as the 329th ranked team in KenPom, and were picked 7th in the league by SB Nation’s Mid-Major Madness. Needless to say this should be a game Missouri wins.
