If you want to sum up Mizzou’s meeting with Butler in its simplest form, it goes like this: the Tigers were awful for the first four minutes, bad for the next four, and regressing to the mean defensively wasn’t enough. So they lost to a pretty good team.
There’s a game against Oklahoma tonight, so I want to hop right in, then we’ll talk.
- How do you know Butler won the game? Peep the rebound margin. The Bulldogs won it handily. Even when Missouri was fighting to make a comeback, the Bulldogs corralled loose balls and secured second possessions.
