Mizzou Basketball is 1-0 and Mizzou Baseball releases its 2020 schedule

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

The 2019-2020 Missouri Men’s basketball season is officially underway, and the Tigers are undefeated.

Mizzou rolled out a starting five of Javon Pickett, Dru Smith, Kobe Brown, Mark Smith, and Jeremiah Tilmon for the season opener.

And Missouri did exactly what they needed to do against an inferior opponent with an 82-42 thumping over Incarnate Word.

Jeremiah Tilmon had a monster game, leading the team with 16 points, going 7-9 from the field with six rebounds and an assist.

Other than that, there wasn’t much to learn from this game playing these kind of opponents. A much tougher task comes Friday night against Northern Kentucky, a team that made the NCAA Tournament last season from the Horizon League and have averaged 24 wins the last three seasons. The litmus test will come Tuesday night at No. 19 Xavier.

Plenty of more coverage to come here today on Rock M Nation after Mizzou’s season-opening win...

On to some baseball news— the Missouri Baseball team has released their schedule for the upcoming 2020 season.

The non-conference portion is highlighted by a College Classic weekend in Houston, Texas at Minute Maid Park against Baylor, Oklahoma, and Texas. Regardless of the results, this scheduling should be beneficial to Missouri’s RPI.

As always, the SEC is going to be a grind, but especially this season without Kameron Misner and T.J. Sikkema. Steve Bieser is 104-67-1 through his first three seasons as the head coach, so he’ll have Missouri competitive, especially with its pitching.
