Missouri is in trouble in two spots in the NCAA this being three pointers and turnovers. While, Vanderbilt’s problems on the court begin with shoot blocking. Additionally, they aren’t preforming well when blocking three-pointers and they tend to put their opponents in bonus early.
Vanderbilt is led by NBA champion Scotty Pippen’s son Scotty Pippen Jr. who leads the team in points, assists and steals with 18.7 points in his 22 games played for the Commodores.
However, the Tigers are led by Kobe Brown who leads the team in points, rebounds, steals and blocks with 13.1 in his 22 games with Mizzou.
Let’s kick off Sunday morning with a look at the SEC men’s basketball standings.
This is a big week for #Mizzou in terms of where it’ll finish in the league. Games vs. Vanderbilt and Ole Miss could have big impact on whether Tigers finish 13th or towards top of the bottom tier. pic.twitter.com/rdJSsqA6mo
