Missouri’s offense continued to struggle in a 17-point loss to Texas A&M. The team shot 30 percent from the field and 26 percent form three in their 68-51 loss.
Somehow, this offense keeps getting worse. The Tigers shot 15-of-49 against the Aggies to earn their 12th loss in 22 games this season.
They held A&M to 34/24/68 shooting splits and forced 15 turnovers… and lost by 17.
Having 32 fouls called against you and only drawing 19 also hurt. Whether that was the referees or mistakes on Mizzou’s part, the game was ugly.
But hey, at least Jeremiah Tilmon is back!
Studs @ Texas A&M
Stud #1: Xavier Pinson
Xavier Pinson is starting to look like the only player who wants to win. His aggression is unmatched by anyone else on the roster and his jump shot and defense are improving.
He scored eight points against the Aggies and dished out two assists while shooting 40 percent from three.
Stud #2: Mitchell Smith
Mitchell Smith nearly had a double-double last night, falling one point shy. His 9-point 11-rebound performance was great coming off of the bench.
His energy is always great and he plays with grit and plays hard. His shooting has been very streaky however, and Mizzou could benefit from some consistency there.
Stud #3: Jeremiah Tilmon
He didn’t do much against A&M, but he played. That is huge for Missouri as they have missed him on the interior. As he works his way back into the lineup, Mizzou should improve with rebounding and interior presence in general.
