Happy Thanksgiving, Mizzou fans!
Be thankful that the Missouri Basketball Tigers are still undefeated! With an 89-51 win over Coastal Carolina, Mizzou improved to 6-0 on the season.
And a big congrats to Nick Honor reaching 1,000 career points.
Isiaih Mosley (aka Mr. Microwave) led the team with 23 points and the Tigers will be back in action on Saturday at 11:00 a.m. CST against Houston Chrisitan on the (actual!) SEC Network.
Yes, I know the schedule isn’t great — but 6-0 is 6-0. They don’t have a damaging loss on their resume yet. That’s important, because we saw last year’s team lose to UMKC and L*berty.
Missouri jumped six spots to No. 51 to No. 45 on KenPom after the win. On Bart Torvik, the Tigers are 52nd with their best game score of the season (98).
Some notable stats on the win:
✅ Sixth-straight game with 80+ points— Mizzou Hoops (@MizzouHoops) November 24, 2022
✅ 20-plus assists for the sixth-straight contest
✅ Hold nation's sixth-ranked scoring offense to just 24.6% shooting in addition to 27 turnovers

Obviously, we’ll know much more about this team with their first real test on the road next Tuesday at Wichita State.

Still, it’s not all bad for the Tigers. Some people have taken notice of their hot start, including ESPN’s Charlie Creme, who has Mizzou currently at a No. 10 seed in their bracketology facing... Baylor. Aijha Blackwell rematch, anyone?
