Smiths leave impact in all facets of the game against Northern Kentucky

As Missouri opened up a large lead on Northern Kentucky during the early portion of the second half Friday, it became clear that “Smith & Smith” were leaving an indelible mark on the game.

Guards Dru Smith and Mark Smith were the two most talked about of the Smiths throughout the preseason. Dru’s point guard skills combined with Mark’s scoring ability were going to make them a dangerous duo in the backcourt. Left out of the equation was forward Mitchell Smith, who was assumed to be in a reserve role, but also expected to have to battle Kobe Brown, Tray Jackson and even Reed Nikko for minutes.
