Live Updates

FINAL: It was a battle to remember. Missouri holds off Ole Miss, 71-68. The Tigers improve to 13-13 (5-8).

7:44 2H: Welp, that lead evaporated with incredible quickness. Breein Tyree is on fire for the Rebels, who now lead 57-56 after going on a 10-0 run.

12:24 2H: Mizzou Arena is on its feet now. Dru Smith takes it all the way to the rim in transition for a nice layup, and Missouri leads 50-40 as Kermit Davis calls timeout for the Rebels.

14:46 2H: Xavier Pinson has Missouri’s last eight points, and the Tigers lead 41-38.

HALF: Missouri leads Ole Miss 31-27. They say halftime is best spent watching replays of Parker Braun dunks.

4:00 1H: Dru Smith is fouled going to the rim and will shoot free throws after the timeout. Missouri leads 23-21.

7:34 1H: Missouri holds a 17-16 lead, but three point struggles and Xavier Pinson on the bench with foul trouble have allowed Ole Miss to hang around.

11:32 1H: It’s a foul fest again, and the crowd is vocally displeased with the officiating. Missouri leads 15-12 after a strong take to the basket by Reed Nikko.

15:58 1H: Missouri has not shot well early, but Ole Miss is ice cold. Tigers lead 7-3.


Three days after recording the program’s most impressive victory in year’s, Missouri hosts Ole Miss tonight at Mizzou Arena.

The two teams are tied at 4-8 in the SEC, but Missouri appears to be rising. In front of a spirited crowd, the Tigers looked as good as anyone on Saturday. Now, with a less exciting opponent in town, it remains to be seen whether Missouri can maintain the energy that was flowing so well over the weekend.
