First Half Notes

  • Wichita State starts out hot from the perimeter with a couple of threes while Mizzou scraps out layups down low.
  • Offensive struggles continue for the Tigers, and Tyson Etienne having a hot start does not bode well for the Tigers.
  • Kobe Brown and Amari Davis got the offense going, as Mizzou made three in a row.
  • Smaller lineup working wonders for Mizzou, everyone becomes a threat.
  • Mizzou fas forced 6 turnovers in the half.
  • Ronnie DeGray with a great hustle play to steal a possession, then a charge on the other end.
  • Yaya Keita and Javon Pickett combine to bring the Tigers all the way back to potentially tying the game.
  • Multiple steals cut the Shocker lead to three at the halftime break.
  • Each team’s offense had their own moments to shine this first half

Second Half Notes

  • Second half starts out slow, but picks up as Wichita State extends their lead to 5.
  • Sloppy play from the Mizzou offense up to this point in the half. Shockers pulling away.
  • Boogie Coleman hits the Tigers’ first three pointer of the game.
  • Missouri can not manufacture enough offense to mount any form of comeback.
  • Amari Davis has been a bright spot, leading the team with 13 points on some impressive shots.
