Missouri Basketball Preview vs. Auburn
COLUMBIA-- The Mizzou basketball team looks to bounce back after a nerve-wracking loss to LSU on Jan. 30, as they host the Auburn Tigers this Saturday. Mizzou comes in with a record of 15-5, including an SEC record of 4-3. Auburn holds a league worst 2-5 record in the SEC, with its only two victories over LSU and South Carolina, and an 8-12 record overall
Laurence Bowers will be making his home return against Auburn, as he missed the previous 5 games with a sprained MCL before returning to the court against LSU, scoring 10 points in 32 minutes of play.
This game will also feature the reunion of Earnest Ross against his old team. While on Auburn, Ross averaged 7.9 points per game as a reserve for the Tigers before transferring to Missouri before the 2011-2012 season.
