Missouri basketball-LSU preview
The Missouri basketball team enters as one of the hottest teams in conference, boasting a 5-game winning streak. Missouri enters the game with an 18-8 record on the season and is 8-5 in SEC games, leaving them in a tie for third. LSU meanwhile hasn’t had as much success under first-year coach Will Wade. LSU enters the game with a 5-8 SEC record and is 14-11 on the season.
During Missouri’s 5-game winning streak, the Tigers have excelled at the end of games. Each one of the games has been decided by single digits and two of those wins have come on the road. For reference, Missouri did not win an SEC road game in the three years that Kim Anderson was coach.
Missouri coach Counzo Martin has already said that star freshman Michael Porter Jr. will not play in this game or the Tigers next game against Ole Miss. There was a report that Porter Jr. had a check up this week and Porter Jr. reiterated last week that he very much wants to return and play for the Tigers this season.
After Missouri visits LSU, the Tigers return home to take on Ole Miss on Tuesday night. Then the Tigers visit Kentucky next Saturday. Missouri is largely considered a lock to make the NCAA Tournament, but it can’t afford to lose either of the next two games given that Ole Miss and LSU are at the bottom of the SEC standings. After the Tigers beat Texas A&M, Martin declared that the Tigers were no longer a bubble team.
“You look at our resume, I think we’re past that,” Martin said following Tuesday night’s win over Texas A&M.
