COLUMBIA, Mo. - The University of Missouri basketball team made 14 three-pointers to propel the team ran past Truman State University 87-48 in exhibition play Wednesday night at Mizzou Arena.

Senior Marcus Denmon led four Tigers in double figures with 23 points on 7-of-10 shooting from behind the arc. Junior Michael Dixon scored 15 points and dished out a game high eight assists, senior Matt Pressey notched 12 points and senior Ricardo Ratliffe added 10 points and seven boards.
