Mizzou Improves to 11-0 with Win Over William & Mary
COLUMBIA (AP) -- Sixth-man Michael Dixon scored a career-high 30 points and No. 10 Missouri beat William & Mary 94-56 on Sunday for its best start in two decades.
Missouri (11-0) jumped to a 19-0 lead over the hapless Tribe, which missed its first eight shots while committing five fouls and 10 turnovers and didn't score until nearly 12 minutes into the game. William & Mary (2-9) made just five first-half baskets.
Kim English added 17 points for Missouri, which last started a season with 11 straight wins under long-time Tigers coach Norm Stewart 20 years ago at the old Hearnes Center.
Tim Rusthoven led the Tribe with 14 points.
Marcus Denmon, Missouri's leading scorer entering the game with a 20.9 average, was held to seven points and went scoreless for most of the first half until converting a reverse layup off a lob pass as he fell to the ground.
