With the win, Mizzou has now won at least 20 games in a school-record six straight seasons. The Tigers last failed to reach 20 wins during the 2007-08 campaign.
Mizzou topped 80 points in the 85-66 win and have eclipsed 80 points 11 times in a game this year.
As a team, Mizzou set season highs in assists (19) and field-goal percentage (62.3 percent). The Tigers also shot an impressive 65 percent from the floor in the second half.
The Tigers finished the first half shooting 18-of-30 (60 percent) from the field. That marked Mizzou's second-best shooting percentage in a first half, trailing only the team's first-half shooting against Tennessee on Feb. 15 (61.5 percent).
The Tigers are now 17-1 this season when shooting more free throws than their opponent. Missouri hit 11-of-15 free throws.
Jabari Brown finished with 21 points, five assists and five rebounds. He has now scored 20 points in 11 of 16 SEC games. Brown has also reached double figures in each of Mizzou's 29 games this year. His 16 20-point games in 2013-14 are the most since Thomas Gardner in 2005-06.
That was Brown's second game of the year recording at least 20 points, five assists and five rebounds. He also topped that mark in the win over South Carolina.
Jabari Brown continues to maneuver his way to 1,000 points in a Tiger uniform. Brown now has 925 points at Mizzou (937 Including his 12 points scored as an Oregon Duck). He would become the first Tiger with 1,000 points in two seasons since DeMarre Carroll (2007-09).
Keanau Post found his touch on the block, scoring a career high 14 points and grabbing a career high seven rebounds. Post's 14 points is the most by a Mizzou player outside of Brown-Clarkson-Ross in SEC play.
Not to be overlooked was the play of Torren Jones. He tied a career high with eight points and added three rebounds and two blocked shots. Jones has poured in 31 points over his last eight games after only scoring eight total points in the season's first 21 game.
With the production of Post (14), Jones (8) and Wes Clark (7), Missouri's bench scored a combined 29 points on an incredible 13-of-14 shooting from the floor. That trio was also 12-of-12 from inside the three-point arc.
Jordan Clarkson finished with 14 points, seven assists and five rebounds, having six assists and five rebounds by halftime.
Johnathan Williams III had two early blocks on the night, giving him his 10th game of the season with at least two blocks.
For the fourth time this season, Ryan Rosburg finished a game making at least three field goals and shooting 100 percent from the field.
Mizzou big men Post, Jones and Rosburg all played extremely efficient basketball, combining to shoot 13-of-13 from the field. Add Williams' 2-of-3 shooting and the Tiger post rotation had its most efficient game of the year.
Wes Clark knocked down a 3-pointer and finished with seven points. The freshman guard has shot 8-of-17 (47.1 percent) from deep over his last eight games.
Mizzou had just nine turnovers and Mississippi State had a season low two steals in the game. The Bulldogs came in averaging 8.0 steals per game on the year, but created just two live-ball opportunities against the Tigers.
