What to Know
The Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Missouri Tigers are set to square off in an SEC matchup at 8 p.m. ET Feb. 20 at Mizzou Arena. The Bulldogs won’t have the home-court advantage, but they do enjoy a 4.5-point advantage in the spread.
Mizzou is out to make up for these teams’ game this past Friday. MSU took down Mizzou 68-49. Four players on MSU scored in the double digits: forward Tolu Smith (16), guard Iverson Molinar (13), forward D.J. Jeffries (12), and forward Garrison Brooks (10).
MSU is expected to win this handily, but they should have beaten the Minnesota Golden Gophers Dec. 5 easily too and instead slipped up with an 81-76. In other words, don’t count the Tigers out just yet.
