Missouri vs. Chattanooga
Mizzou Arena – Columbia, MO
The Tigers were on fire from three-point land. Missouri tied a school record with 37 attempted three-pointers, and the 18 they made was good enough for second all-time in Missouri’s record books.
Missouri had a school-record 24 steals in the game. The previous high had been 23, set against Florida A&M in December 1991. The team’s big men were a menace in the passing lanes, forcing half of the team’s turnovers.
Sophomore Kim English followed a 25-point performance against UT-Pan American with a career-high 26 points, all off the bench, on a 10-17 shooting night..
English’s 21 first-half points is the first time a Tiger has scored 20 in the opening half since Thomas Gardner dropped in 20 vs. Kansas in 2005-06. Gardner finished the game with 40 points in a Tiger victory.
English also posted season highs for Missouri in first-half points (21), three-pointers attempted (11) and made (5), field goals attempted (17), and field goals made (10).
Sophomore Marcus Denmon notched a career-high 17 points as he scored in double digits for the third consecutive game. He now has 12 career double-digit scoring games.
Sophomore Miguel Paul had a career high 14 points, shooting 4-6 from three-point range.
Missouri’s 59 first-half points was the Tigers’ highest first-half point total of the season. It was the most the Tigers have scored in the first half since they had 60 in the second half, also against UT-Chattanooga, in 2008. The Tigers have scored 50+ points in all three games this season.
The Tigers recorded season-highs in forced turnovers with 29.
The Tiger bench was once again strong for Missouri, scoring 49 points. Mizzou’s bench came into the game averaging 51 points per game.
Missouri improved to 27-1 when dishing at least 20 assists in a game.
