COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri is one win away from a perfect home record in the regular season.
It wants to give a big send-off to three seniors.
Fifth-year senior Laurence Bowers is the Tigers' leading scorer with a 14.2-point average heading into the finale against Arkansas and former Missouri coach Mike Anderson on Tuesday.
No doubt, it'll be a meaningful occasion for the 6-foot-8 forward, who has made a strong comeback after missing last season with a knee injury and will be playing his 88th game at Mizzou Arena.
Forward Alex Oriakhi, the leading rebounder, and guard Keion Bell, who has been on a scoring tear lately, are essential short-term transfers from Connecticut and Pepperdine.
All three have made their single season under coach Frank Haith count.
Especially at home, where the Tigers are 16-0.
