Game Thread: Missouri at Texas A&M

Two of the three worst teams in the SEC in KenPom take the court on CBS today.

NCAA Basketball: Oral Roberts at Missouri Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Missouri hasn’t beaten Texas A&M in College Station since 2012. In 2013 they lost by a bucket, in 2014 they didn’t make the trip down to A&M, then for some reason in 2015-2017 the Tigers failed to field a basketball team for some reason, forfeiting three scheduled games. Last season the trip resulted in an ugly 60-49 loss which started a 3 game losing streak. Now the Tigers are on a 3 game losing streak to start conference play and while winning at Reed Arena isn’t easy, the Aggies might be the worst team Billy Kennedy has had since his 2012 team. See how I bookended that?

Five Questions

  2. Pick Tilmon’s line O/U: 19.5 min, 10.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, 4.5 fouls
  3. Who will be the first to break out of their slump, Puryear or Geist?
  4. (not a question but...) Predict the score!
