What you need to know about Missouri
Meanwhile, the game between the Tigers and the Arkansas Razorbacks on Tuesday was not a total blowout, but with Mizzou falling 76-57 at home, it was darn close to turning into one. One thing holding Mizzou back was the mediocre play of forward Kobe Brown, who did not have his best game: he finished with only six points on 3-for-10 shooting in his 30 minutes on the court.
The Tigers have lost six of their last eight games, but they're 7-3 against the spread in their last 10 contests.
