NCAA Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament-Missouri Tigers vs Ole Miss Rebels Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Missouri 68 | LSU 76

Final

First Half Notes

  • LSU is dominating the glass early on.
  • Lack of a true point guard really showing against a strong defense.
  • Turnovers, yet again, a problem for Mizzou. 4 early on.
  • No offensive flow for Missouri, as they rarely get into the paint of LSU.
  • Really quick 11-2 run for LSU out of the TV timeout.
  • LSU’s #1 ranked defense (in the SEC) really showing its worth right now, making life extremely difficult for a Missouri team that already does not shoot well.
  • Could not play a much worse offensive half if you’re Mizzou.
  • Still, Missouri fought back to make it at least respectable at halftime.

Second Half Notes

  • Missouri surging to start the half, cut the lead to 11.
  • Energy level across the board is at a different level.
  • Trevon Brazile having an all-around great game, 7 rebounds and 6 points to go along with a steal and a block.
  • 12-0 run in six minutes extends the lead back out to above 20 for LSU.
  • LSU salting this game away by dominating the paint.
  • Missouri making a late push to make things look respectable.
