Live In-Game Updates: Missouri Tigers Outlast Wichita State Shockers in Overtime, 88-84 – Sports Illustrated

Uncategorized

The Missouri Tigers have started this season about as well as anyone in the country. They're 7-0 under head coach Dennis Gates, who has this Mizzou program looking like a well-oiled machine early in his first season at the helm. So far, though, they've been playing on the friendly hardwood of their own home court, but that all changes tonight. 
The Tigers are on the road for the first time this year and taking down Wichita State in their home arena will be no easy task. The Shockers are 4-2 and, led by senior guard Craig Porter Jr., will likely pose the toughest challenge for Mizzou thus far in the 2022-2023 calendar. 
Missouri has five players averaging double digits in scoring, including guards Kobe Brown and D'Moi Hodge who lead the team in that category, and the Tigers have displayed a well balanced attack under Gates. With so many scoring options, expect the baskets to be pretty evenly spread for the Tigers in this one.
