Game thread: Mizzou takes on Miss State in Starkville

A tough road game faces the young Tigers without Mark Smith for the remainder of the season

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

Mizzou continues it’s run of Tuesday night contests with a trip to Starkvegas, to face a top 25 kenpom team, and one with a lot of experience and talent.

Mark Smith is for sure out after scheduling ankle surgery, Mizzou made the move official earlier today and it’s probably smart without much left to play for. But the Tigers do have a chance to capture a win against a team they split a series with last year, but haven’t won in Starkville since 2013, when they beat the Bulldogs 76-38.

The Details

Opponent: Mississippi State Bulldogs (20-7, 8-6 SEC)

Time: 6 p.m. CT

Where: Humphrey Coliseum; Starkville, MS

Is Mizzou Receiving Top 25 Votes? probably could remove this for the rest of the year.

What Does Vegas Say? Miss State, -11

What Does KenPom Say? Mississippi State 74, Missouri 63
