MBB Game Thread: Tigers @ Gamecocks

New, comments

With just two games to play this season, the Tigers will be going to Columbia East to play spoiler

NCAA Basketball: Tennessee at Missouri Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

With the Tigers’ season merely a formality at this point, they’ve still got a chance to spoil some season’s starting with this one against South Carolina. Will the Tigers end their losing streak, or will the Gamecocks add on another game to it?

Second Half

  • South Carolina is just swatting everything
  • SC is putting some distance between themselves and the Tigers now. Lead is up to double digits early in the second half.
  • Just when it looked like SC was going to step on Mizzou’s throat, the Tigers have managed to fight their way back a bit.
  • First half of the season Kobe Brown just seems to have disappeared the second half of this year.
  • Mizzou isn’t going away, and they’re staying in striking distance, but I still have no confidence in the, to finish job.
  • Down just 4, can they do it?
  • I’m still struggling to grasp that Mizzou has a chance to win this one. A strong final 4 minutes might just do it.
  • After cutting it to 1, SC getting an and-1 was just brutal.
  • Kobe Brown dribbles it off his foot, and that’s just the way this team has closed games out.
  • Moments later, we get a Boogie Coleman foul-out, and it looks like Mizzou is about to lose another close game.
  • Kobe Brown is doing everything he can to come back, but SC has just been nails at the line and against the trap.
  • Kobe Brown with the BACK DOOR COVER!

First Half

  • I do not know what’s happening with this play-by-play guy’s mic but it’s impossible to hear.
  • Now the scoreboard is gone... ESPN is struggling right now
  • South Carolina didn’t score until the scoreboard was back. I’m going to have to ask ESPN to remove it once more.
  • Anyone else really dislike Mizzou’s yellow jerseys?
  • This game is a turnover fest.
  • Nice alley oop out of the timeout. Looked like Cuonzo drew that one up.
  • This game isn’t going to be about who makes more shots, but who misses less. This is the definition of a rock fight.
  • 6 turnovers at the under-12 shooting 30% is less than ideal, it’s a miracle Mizzou is only down 1.
  • South Carolina just seems like a team that has the sense of urgency to be playing for their postseason chances.
  • I don’t know how he missed that dunk. WOW. What a break for Mizzou
  • Amari Davis has 3 fouls already, and Kobe Brown has 2 as well. This team cannot afford to be playing this carelessly with how thing their bench is.
  • SC has just 2 points off TO.
  • If SC would make their layups, they’d be running away with this.
  • Making that three to end the half was huge for Mizzou.

Five Questions!

  1. Will the Tigers cover?
  2. Over/Under 136.5?
  3. Should Kaleb Brown get a chunk of Boogie Coleman’s minutes this game?
  4. Who is your trifecta for the game?
  5. What will the final score be?
