It’s been a strange year, but don’t let the up and down nature of Missouri’s season cloud the event and celebration of the final home game. The celebration is limited to the lone senior being honored today, and that’s Reed Nikko.
Nikko signed with Missouri in the 2016 class and joined the roster for Kim Anderson’s last season in Columbia. He was a role player for that season and the next, the first under Cuonzo Martin. He settled nicely into the role buying minutes when Jeremiah Tilmon was sent to the bench.
Alabama comes in having alternated wins and losses over their last nine games. Lose one, win one. They lost at home to Vanderbilt on Tuesday so that wouldn’t hold up well for Missouri. However the rematch of Mizzou’s loss in Tuscaloosa might set things straight for the Tigers, and hopefully they can send out Big ‘Sota with a big last home win.
