Missouri made it pretty respectable when Jeremiah Tilmon was playing. The rest of the game not so much.
Missouri again caught the turnover bug and sunk their chances to sneak a road win at Ole Miss.
Missouri needed every ounce provided by Jeremiah Tilmon’s return to the lineup.
For 63 minutes against A&M this season the Tigers were dominant. For the final 17 on Saturday night, they were dominated.
On the road against the top-ranked team in the land, Missouri did enough to stay within striking distance, but it didn’t have the offensive firepower to threaten the Volunteers.
It’s nice to get back in the win column, and they did it by feeding Jeremiah Tilmon who has learned to stay on the court.
The positivity train took a bit of a hit last night as Auburn drained three after three.
When you realize Mizzou was really excellent on defense and mostly below average on offense...
Defense travels, and Martin and the Tigers brought their defense to College Station to capture a much needed win.
The signs might point to Mizzou meeting South Carolina at the worst possible time, and even without Jeremiah Tilmon they nearly pulled off the comeback.
On Tuesday, the No. 3 Volunteers dispensed a little dose of reality at Mizzou Arena.
Mizzou got what they needed from three guys, and not so much from the rest of the roster.
