Game thread: Young Missouri squad returns home to try and right the ship

The Tigers will try to snap their four-game losing streak against South Carolina

NCAA Basketball: Missouri at Florida Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

After losing its last four games against a murderer’s row of SEC opponents, Missouri (12-15, 3-12 SEC) is in the midst of its longest skid of the season. But the Tigers return to the confines of Mizzou Arena on Saturday to face Frank Martin’s South Carolina Gamecocks (14-14, 9-6 SEC). Carolina is without second-leading scorer A.J. Lawson, but Missouri will still have its hands full with senior stalwart Chris Silva. It’s imperative that Jeremiah Tilmon finds a way to stay on the floor.
