COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Missouri Tigers weren’t in the mood for consolation prizes after snapping a four-game home winning streak Saturday, but there was one obvious positive in their 67-63 loss to Mississippi State: Jeremiah Tilmon showed more than just flashes of his potential.
In his first home game since Dec. 15 the junior center got his first extended minutes since suffering a stress fracture in his left foot.
