Mizzou basketball tops Northern Kentucky for 2nd win

Mizzou basketball matched up with Northern Kentucky well in its second game of the season, and the Tigers took out the Norse 71-56 on Friday night at Mizzou Arena.

The Tigers picked up a big game from starting guard Mark Smith, who led the Tigers with 19 points. Smith picked up big buckets when Mizzou needed it, and the junior was 4 of 7 from the 3-point line. That’s what the Tigers will need from their starting guard throughout the season. He delivered it against Northern Kentucky, an NCAA Tournament team from a season ago.

Mizzou basketball is now 2-0, and the Norse drop to 1-1.
