Led by Xavier Pinson, Mizzou secured a quality win that is sure to boost their tournament resume in March

Xavier Pinson led the charge for the Tigers in taking down the Ducks.

The Tigers led almost wire to wire and continued right where they left off against Oral Roberts. Xavier Pinson had 22 points, Mark Smith had 15, and Javon Pickett provided a spark off the bench with 13.

The Tigers now improve to 2-0 and will face a depleted Wichita State squad on Sunday and then Liberty at home before they welcome Illinois for Braggin’ Rights.
