The University of Missouri men’s basketball team cut their player interviews short following a close victory over what was supposed to be a vastly inferior opponent.
No Tiger scored more than 10 points. They shot 14/27 from the free throw line. They won by five thanks more to two late turnovers than solid play.
Western Illinois battled the whole game. Leathernecks’ guard Matt Lander scored a game high 24 points but matched that production with six turnovers, also a game high.
No Tiger scored in the double digits, marking the first time the men’s basketball team won without a player notching more than 10 points in more than half a century.
Right now you can see the slideshow I put together for KCTV5 on the story sidebar.
