First Half Notes

  • Student section is packed...other sections not so much.
  • Starters for Mizzou: DeAndre Gholston, D’Moi Hodge, Nick Honor, Noah Carter, Kobe Brown.
  • Tip-off delayed due to lighting issues.
  • Kobe Brown with the first bucket of the Dennis Gates era.
  • D’Moi Hodge looking like the marksman on this team. Has an early 3 in this one and was 34 against Wash U.
  • Great play design leads to a wide-open dunk for Kobe Brown.
  • Tre Gomillion and Isiaih Mosely are the first subs. Kaleb Brown follows shortly after.
  • Mosley puts a defender in a blender and finishes with the left. Follows it up with a tough pull-up in transition.
  • Screaming Eagles have burned two timeouts already.
  • Southern Indiana has some crafty and quick guards, a good matchup for Honor, East, and Gomillion defensively.
  • Aidan Shaw gets his first bucket as a Tiger, follows it up with a 3-pointer. Freshman showing confidence early.
  • A Kobe Brown breakaway dunk forces Southern Indiana to call their third timeout of the half.
  • 6 fouls for Mizzou at the 9 minute mark.
  • Screaming Eagles now in the bonus with 8:07 left.

Second Half Notes

  • Gholston comes out of the half with 7 quick points.
  • Noah Carter raises Kobe Brown another poster dunk, cocks it behind his head and throws it down with authority.

  • Another charge taken by Mizzou, this time from Mosley.
  • Ronnie DeGray checking in for the first time this season.
