Auburn 55 | Missouri 54
First Half Notes
- Kessler vs. Brazile for the jump should be so unfair, but Brazile’s length makes it a close contest actually.
- Kobe Brown wins the first matchup of good-on-good vs Jabari Smith.
- Bounces going Mizzou’s way early.
- Chalk it up if Amari Davis has any mid-range look ever. Early 10 point lead for Mizzou.
- Tigers begin things hot from behind the arc with 3 three-pointers.
- Energy is off the charts in Mizzou Arena (at least from the student section). Pearl and Auburn seem a bit rattled.
- Amari Davis counting his stellar offensive play as of late.
- This display of ball movement is a telltale sign of this Missouri team really beginning to mesh as a team.
- Jabari Smith really struggling to get any quality looks in this first half.
- K.D. Johnson really feeling it now Auburn, accounted for 6 straight points either himself or on an assist to give Auburn the lead.
- Walker Kessler looks like he is a foot taller than any Mizzou player on the floor.
Second Half Notes
- K.D. Johnson plays like a pit bull, which is a major compliment.
- Auburn got out to a fast start, but Kobe Brown responded by taking over on offense.
- Slow offensive start to the half for both sides.
- Both teams have to work really, really hard to get any good looks at the basket.
- Auburn beginning to really impose their will on the offensive glass.
- Jabari Smith and Kobe Brown going back and forth late has every NBA scout drooling.
- Ronnie DeGray with a monster offensive board that drew a foul.
- K.D. Johnson has continually showed up when Auburn needs it.
- Javon Pickett with the most clutch shot he will ever hit in his life, back to a one point game.
