The Missouri Tigers continue to take a dip within the Southeastern Conference as they have lost four of their last five conference games. As a result, they find themselves one slot away from the celler as they prepare to take on the defensive-minded Florida Gators on Saturday afternoon.
On the other hand, the Florida Gators are middle of the pack as it relates to the SEC, currently. In all, they have won three straight games while looking to pick up even more momentum, moving forward, after their win over LSU.
Despite their troubles on the offensive end, the defense for Missouri continues to allow opponents to average only 43% shooting on a nightly basis. In their last outing versus the Kentucky Wildcats, however, the visitors connected on 48% of their shots for the contest while also getting 18 points each from Tyler Herro along with PJ Washington.
On the other hand, Missouri shot well under 40% for the night while only getting to the free-throw line a total of 5 times compared to 22 for the Wildcats. In all, the Missouri Tigers has failed to score 70 points in four of their last five games.
Ronnie Suggs Led the team in scoring with 13 points versus Kentucky while Jordan Geist also chipped in 11 points, 6 rebounds, along with four assists in the loss. And while Geist has shot only 41% from the floor on the season, he continues to lead the team with 15 points per game along with five rebounds while shooting 37% from three-point range.
Unfortunately for Missouri, Geist had yet another difficult night versus the Florida Gators in their last matchup as he ended the game with just six points on 2-3 shooting from the perimeter. On the other hand, Jordan Barnett kept the Tigers close throughout during their first meeting with the Gators in putting up 28 points in defeat.
The Florida Gators put on yet another great defensive performance versus the LSU Tigers in their last time out. For the contest, they allowed just 42% shooting to the Tigers while also forcing 15 turnovers in the much-needed victory.
Their offense was also uncharacteristically warm from the field as the Gators shot 46% as a team while also connecting on 11 3-pointers on the night. Kevaughn Allen led the team with 21 points while Noah Locke along with Jalen Hudson chipped in 15 points apiece.
In all, each of these players were instrumental in allowing the Gators to pull out an overtime victory to pick up their 3rd straight victory, along with 2nd straight road win. The Gators will now embark on three straight games to where they will be well equipped to pick up victories over the Tigers, Vanderbilt, along with Georgia.
Of course, they will meet up with LSU after their matchup with the Bulldogs to sweep the season series. Allen continues to impress from the three-point arc as he is shooting 37% on the season while Locke came out of a huge lump in their last matchup vs LSU as he posted double-digits for the first time in the last three games for the Gators.
