In their first game after a less than stellar Border War performance, the Tigers face Utah. The Utes will be without their best player but will still be looking to put a bow on a solid non-conference performance. As for the Tigers, this is their final tuneup before Braggin Right, so they’ll be looking for an improved performance after the KU debacle.

Second Half Notes

  • Brazile makes this team so much more dynamic around the rim on both sides of the ball.
  • Kobe Brown is just taking over. This is the Kobe Mizzou needs.
  • If he could avoid foul trouble, Kobe could be one of the best players in the SEC
  • Boogie Coleman loves taking tough shots
  • Jenkins is giving Mizzou bucket after bucket
  • Davis looks so comfortable today. When him and Kobe are at their best, this Mizzou offense looks a lot prettier.
  • Utah seems to have an answer anytime Mizzou wants to make a run.
  • Kobe Brown what a bad man
  • Boogie Coleman hitting that shot just made up for all the questionable shots earlier.

First Half Notes

  • Looks like both teams will be going back and forth in this one
  • Two early fouls for Brookshire really dampers his ability to get a chance with starter minutes
  • I like the early minutes from Durugordon
  • Need more action for Kobe Brown
  • I don’t know if the pace of this game favors the Tigers.
  • Looks like Amari Davis took not starting personally.
  • Boogie looks like his jumper is just lost right now.
  • If this pace keeps up, I don’t know if Mizzou can sustain their strong early shooting.
  • Mizzou’s bad three point shooting combined with Utah’s good 3-point defense is a recipe for disaster.
  • The end of that half was a much more defensive battle.
