The Missouri Tigers (10-17) travel to Oxford, Mississippi to take on the Ole Miss Rebels (17-10) in an SEC matchup. The Tigers have a 3-11 conference record, while the Rebels post a 7-7 record in the SEC. Ole Miss is tied for seventh in the SEC with Alabama and Georgia, while Missouri is sitting last in the conference.
Missouri rides a one game losing streak coming into this one after falling to Arkansas 84-72 last Saturday. The Tigers haven’t been able to produce a lot of offense this season averaging just 68.1 PP making them the second worst offensive team in the SEC.
The Tigers, like much of the SEC, are an awful road team posting an 0-9 record when away from home. Missouri will have trouble picking up their first win on the road against Ole Miss since the Rebels are an impressive 10-2 on their home court.
