Missouri vs South Carolina Basketball GameDay: info, where to watch, predictions

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

Preview for the game is coming shortly, if you’re reading this after 7 am central, it’s already up. This link should work (after 7).

This season has been odd. Missouri hasn’t met our expectations, but outside of that the rest of college basketball has been turned upside down on a nearly nightly basis. Here’s a few small examples of the upsets that have happened:

  • Unranked and 86th rated UCF beat third ranked Kansas at home in a Big 12 league game (yes, UCF is in the Big 12 if you haven’t been paying attention), the Knights were coming off a 25 point loss to Kansas State on the road.
  • Unranked and 67th rated Virginia Tech beat 21st ranked Clemson by 15 points. The Hokies were coming off a loss to sub 100 rated Florida State.
  • Unranked and 63rd rated Butler took down 11th ranked Marquette at home by 7 points, the Bulldogs were owners of three straight losses.
  • Top ranked Purdue lost to Nebraska by 16 points in Lincoln.
  • 17th ranked Colorado State is 1-2 in their own league after losing their second road game in a row to Boise State.

That’s not even the full list of top 25 ranked teams who lost on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesday ranked teams were 8-4, on Wednesday they were 4-5. The second rated team in KenPom is Arizona who have an 18 point loss to 82nd rated Stanford. Duke is the 7th rated KenPom team and have a loss to 127th rated Georgia Tech. 22nd rated Florida Atlantic beat Arizona, then a week later lost to 270th rated Florida Gulf Coast. Xavier is the 40th rated team with losses to Houston (1), Purdue (3), and UConn (5), and also Oakland (149) and Delaware (130).

It’s a weird year for Missouri, but it’s a weird year everywhere. The transfer portal has lowered the ceiling on everyone and heightened the floor, so parity is close to an all time high. I just want Missouri to win a game today.
