Missouri Tigers 82 | Lindenwood Lions 53


First Half Notes

  • Starters for Mizzou remain the same: DeAndre Gholston, D’Moi Hodge, Nick Honor, Kobe Brown and Noah Carter
  • Starters for Lindenwood: Brandon Trimble, Kevin Caldwell Jr. Chris Childs, David Ware and Cam Burrell
  • Lindenwood wins the opening tipoff, and Burrell knocks down the game’s first shot. Gholston responds with Mizzou’s first basket.
  • Tre Gomillion is the first substitute for Mizzou off the bench, coming in for Gholston. He creates a steal and earns the assist on a dunk from Gholston, who returned to the game.
  • The Tigers have forced four Lion turnovers in the first five minutes, but Mizzou has yet to hit a three-pointer.
  • Six turnovers in less than nine minutes for the Lions. Defensively, the Tigers look impressive once again.
  • Noah Carter drill a three-pointer, Mizzou’s first of the game, on his 22nd birthday.
  • Isiaih Mosley is in the game.
  • Nick Honor snaps the nearly three-minute scoring drought with Mizzou’s second three-pointer of the day. Keenon Cole, who leads the Lions with seven points, responds right back.
  • Isiaih Mosley —> Tre Gomillion dunk excites the crowd
  • The Tigers are shooting just 22.2% from beyond the arc, but have forced seven Lindenwood turnovers thus far.
  • Tre Gomillion with yet another dunk, his third of the game. He’s up to six points in eight minutes of action.
  • Sloppy game from both sides throughout the first half. Neither team is shooting above 45% from the field or 25% from beyond the arc.
  • Kobe Brown with a dump-off pass to Noah Carter under the basket, and the latter delivers a slam.
  • Nick Honor knocks down three-pointers on back-to-back Mizzou possessions. Carter follows that up with another dunk, giving him nine points on the day.
  • Kobe Brown is up to eight points, following a layup with under a minute remaining in the first half. Tigers will have time for one possession before half.
  • Lindenwood’s Ware knocks down a layup before the buzzer to cut the deficit to 15 points at the half.

Second Half Notes

  • Carter drains a three-pointer from the top of the key to start the second half scoring.
  • Five fouls for Mizzou in less than four minutes to begin the second half.
  • Back-to-back Lindenwood possessions with a three-pointer, and the Tigers are already up to six team fouls with 15:57 still remaining.
  • Mosley knocks down a layup for his points of the afternoon.
  • Mosley lobs one to Kobe Brown, who throws it down with authority.
  • Brown follows that up with a block on the defensive end.
  • Mosley takes a charge on the defensive end. This Mizzou defense has been ferocious...except for the fouls.
  • Aidan Shaw rises above the rim for a dunk off of a pass from Mosley.
  • The Lions are hanging around. Caldwell Jr. drills a three-pointer to cut the deficit to 10 points.
  • D’Moi Hodge with back-to-back-to-back baskets on Mizzou possessions.
  • Gholston knocks down one of two free throws to make it a 19-point Mizzou lead.
  • Carter and Gholston knock down baskets, extending the Mizzou lead to 23 points.
  • Shaw nearly converted a reverse slam dunk, but lost the handle while hovering in the air.
  • Mizzou has forced 17 turnovers, including another charge taken by Gholston just moments ago.
  • Shaw slams home a lob from Mosley, and that may have been the loudest I’ve heard Mizzou Arena yet today.
  • Ben Sternberg drills a half-court three-pointer at the buzzer to cap off a victory for the Tigers. Mizzou players mob him.
