It’s easy to win at basketball. Just make all your shots!

You already know that Mizzou finally nabbed a conference road win on Tuesday night, beating Ole Miss in Oxford 89-77. You may already know that they shot, as Matt Watkins put it on Twitter, “the orange” off the ball.

But did you know their shooting was record-breaking good?

That’s right: Mizzou’s 16 three-point makes are the most a Tiger team has ever made in one game. It’s also the first time three Tigers have gotten so hot behind the arc in more than five years!

When one of your guys is pulling off moves like this, you know it’s going to be a good night.

Next up? Iowa State, which is on a heater of its own. See you CoMo, Cyclones!
