#12 Missouri (15-2) goes on the road in Big 12 action against #13 Texas A&M (15-1). The Tigers are looking to rebound after a bad loss on the road at Colorado on January 8th. The Tigers can put points on the scoreboard as they average 85 per game, good for 5th in the country. Mizzou is led in scoring by guard Marcus Denmon (17.6 ppg), but also have four other players who average double digits in scoring including forwards Laurence Bowers (12.2 ppg) and Ricardo Ratliffe (11.4 ppg).
Texas A&M has lost just one game all season, against Boston College, but they have also beaten just one Top 25 team, #22 Washington. The Aggies will have a huge test in the next ten days, facing three ranked teams in consecutive games, starting with this week’s game against Mizzou and then must face Kansas State and Texas so we’ll learn a lot about this team in the next week and a half. The Aggies are having trouble scoring, which could bode poorly against the high-scoring Tigers, but they have high-flying Khris Middleton who averages 15 points per game. Forwards David Loubeau (11.4) and Nathan Walkup (10.3) provide secondary scoring.
Mizzou has something to prove as do the Aggies so the game should be competitive and entertaining.
