13:04 1H: Mark Smith with a nice finish at the rim in traffic. Missouri leads 8-7.
7:18 1H: Certainly not the prettiest game so far. Lots of missed shots at turnovers on both sides. Missouri leads 11-10.
HALF: That was ugly. Both teams combined for 24 turnovers to just 14 made shots. No one in white made a three. Yuck. Missouri holds a 21-20 lead.
17:03 2H: WE HAVE A WINNER IN THE PUTTING GAME! That got the crowd on its feet, and is easily the most exciting thing that has happened all day. Kira Lewis Jr. scores to put Alabama ahead 26-25.
3:45 2H: Jeremiah Tilmon with a lovely move down low to score. Missouri leads 58-46, and the game has picked up quite a bit of intensity in the last 10 minutes.
1:46 2H: Conference win number seven is in sight for Missouri. Mark Smith buries a deep three, and the home team leads 63-49.
FINAL: Missouri wins, 69-50, securing conference win number seven for the year.
