After the tough stretch we went through (1-5 in those games) we get quite possibly the worst team in the SEC AT HOME to recover with. I'm not sure where this Mizzou team stands history wise, but they got to be one of the worst ones the last 30 years. Even Quinn Snyder's last team was better than this I think. You can blame Frank Haith for this.
Ricky Tarrant is out for this game and it looks like it could be a while before we see him again. We need others to step up and not be afraid to shoot, but at the same time take better shots that Tarrant did.
Missouri won their opening SEC game vs LSU... and haven't won since.
Johnathan Williams III and Wes Clark are the only players averaging double digit scoring. As a team they shoot a tad over 34% from beyond the arc... which is better than us (31%) but suck inside the arc (under 41%). Only Namon Wright shoots over 40% from 3.
They don't score a lot, don't rebound well, below average at the charity stripe, and turn the ball over a bunch... a refreshing change from our last few games. If there was a game to get well on this is it.
Kim Anderson inherited a wreck... I suspect in 2 years Mizzou will be in the top 1/3 of the SEC again.
This portion of the schedule looked fairly easy earlier on in the season, but Miss St and Vandy are playing much better... those are not ones I can easily check as W this year.
