Pregame notes

Missouri travels to Oxford looking to rebound after a competitive home loss to Mississippi State last Saturday.

The last time the Tigers and Rebels met on the hardwood, Xavier Pinson and Breein Tyree went back and forth in an exciting duel, with Pinson eventually winning the battle, and Missouri the game.

Missouri still has something to play for, or at least play to avoid. The Tigers will look to win their final two games to avoid playing on the first night of the SEC Tournament in two weeks.
