Game thread: Tigers set to face guard-heavy Gators

Missouri can get back to .500 with a road upset of Florida

NCAA Basketball: Florida at Missouri Amy Kontras-USA TODAY Sports

Two more contests remain on the toughest four-game stretch of Missouri’s schedule. Today, the Tigers square off with the Florida Gators, who have won three straight. It’s another chance for Mizzou to get the marquee win — on the road against a likely tournament team — that has eluded it all season. But more importantly, it’s a chance for the Tigers’ young guns to gain some SEC road experience and continue the progress they’ve shown all season. Unfortunately, that group will probably not feature the team’s leading 3-point shooter, sophomore Mark Smith, who is expected to sit out with a foot/knee injury that’s hampered him for a month.
