Missouri basketball goes on the road to play South Carolina this weekend.
The Missouri basketball team is coming off a huge win this past week.
The Tigers were down 20 points with about 13 minutes to play in Tuesday’s game against the Georgia Bulldogs. But Mizzou came back, outscoring Georgia 33-10 from that point on to shock its opponents and take home the 72-69 win. If Mizzou keeps up that momentum, Saturday’s game could be a good one in Columbia, South Carolina, as Mizzou takes on the South Carolina Gamecocks.
