MBB Game Thread: Tigers vs Ole Miss

New, comments

For the third time this year, these two teams will square off in the SEC tournament

NCAA Basketball: Missouri at Louisiana State Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports

Mizzou got the best of Ole Miss in the regular season beating them in Columbia and Oxford, but beating a team three times in a season is always hard. Will the Tigers extend their season, or will a disappointing season come to an end?

Second Half Notes

  • Pickett is back, and that’s much needed.
  • Kobe Brown is a MAN. What a play on that and-one.
  • As a team Mizzou is 2-6 from the line. They’re going to need to step it up.
  • Coming out of half, Mizzou has made sure they’re the aggressor in this one.
  • DaJuan got UPPP on a putback dunk.
  • Kobe has been so efficient today. He’s not scoring every possession, but when he does, he’s finishing almost every time and many times through contact.
  • I don’t know if it’s the delay on the sound on the TV, but I feel like a lot of the whistles in this game have been pretty late.
  • Mizzou has done a great job this half of making sure Ole Miss doesn’t get too close on a comeback bid. It feels like Ole Miss has never been closer than 9 this half.
  • Three blocks tonight for Brazile. I can’t wait to see what this kid turns into next year.

First Half Notes

  • Off the jump this one looks like it’s going to be a good game with both teams trying to extend their game.
  • Mizzou looks very aggressive attacking the rim, and that’s exactly what you want to see.
  • Every time Trevon Brazile blocks a ball, it’s cool. He’s never had a boring block in his life, they’re all so violent.
  • Ronnie DeGray is shooting the lights out with 3 threes already in this one.
  • Ronnie DeGray has 11 points in 10 minutes!
  • Matt Murrell just baptized a man.
  • With two fouls on Kobe, the Tigers just need to make sure they hang around until they can get him back out there.
  • There’s 4 minutes left in the first half, and Ronnie DeGray has half of Missouri’s points. It’s safe to say no one saw this coming.
  • It looks like Javon will be ok, but the thought of losing him is scary.
  • Boogie’s threes never even having a chance to go in is way too common.
