LSU Tigers vs. Missouri Tigers: live stream, preview and prediction


The LSU Tigers men’s basketball team is back on the court tonight at 6:00 p.m. CT taking on the 14-3 Missouri Tigers from Pete Maravich Assembly Center with the Tigers looking to improve to 3-2 in Southeastern Conference Play.

LSU win in a rout when they knocked off the Vanderbilt Commodores on Saturday night with a final score of 81-58 and a similar effort will be necessary to defeat Missouri.

After starting the season 10-0, Missouri is only 4-3, but is coming off a 21-point win over the Alabama Crimson Tide on Saturday, so they come into tonight’s matchup with similar momentum to their SEC west adversary.

They are led by a pair of junior guards in Jabari Brown and Jordan Clarkson who are pouring in 18.8 and 18.6 points per game on average to lead the team in scoring.

Jonathan Williams III does the damage on the glass as the freshman leads the team in rebounding with 7.5 per game. The matchup of Williams and fellow freshman Jordan Mickey will be a fun one to watch.

The difference, however, will be in how well LSU can slow down the dynamic duo of Brown and Clarkson.

LSU is up next on Jan. 25 at Alabama with a 7:00 p.m. CT start.
