Missouri basketball hopes to ride momentum
COLUMBIA - After a wild 20 point comeback over the Georgia Bulldogs on Tuesday night, the Missouri Tigers travel to South Carolina to face the Gamecocks in a battle of the Columbia schools.
Before last game, the Tigers lost four straight to SEC opponents, but they look to expand upon their recent success on Saturday. Meanwhile, South Carolina has won four of its last five matchups, the last one being a narrow victory over Arkansas.
The Gamecocks are in a four-way tie for 6th place in the SEC standings, while Mizzou sits in 11th place.
To come out of this one with a win, the Tigers have to do a good job of defending the Gamecocks' guard trio, particularly A.J. Lawson, and they need to force turnovers.
The game tomorrow is at 2:30 P.M. on SEC Network.
