My best friend is a Clemson fan. He was worried about their guards being able to handle our defensive pressure. I am worried about Booker, but if they have trouble even getting it to him this game could go in Missouri's favor.

Holy hell.

There's really not a lot you can do when your opponent is canning 80% of it's 3pt shots. You just try to weather the storm and hope they'll stop.

Fortunately, I think MU is equipped to handle this kind of onslaught, but it can't keep coming and they need to clean up their rotations to help speed up the end up this hot streak.

MU takes way too many jump shots IMO. If they worked into the paint more they could open up the offense... more layups and dunks leads to the defense packing the post, which leads to open perimeter shots... dribble-drive, kick, or layup.

Maybe.

But MU can make a team that has a swing-man disguised as a PG look pretty bad pretty quickly.

Mizzou would obviously need to shoot a hell of a lot better than they are right now (well...they'd need to win today first), but I would feel more comfortable with that matchup than I was with the Memphis game last season.

Eh, no matter - we'll probably slip up in this game.

Reminds me of Uconn last year.

That game stung so badly not because they lost, but because they outplayed UConn, they just couldn't buy a bucket.

If they shot just a little bit better in that game, they'd have made the Final 4. It was absolutely heartbreaking to see them play so well in so many facets only to just keep missing shots that they'd hit all season.

C'mon MU, lets get it together.

The advantage MU has against teams outside the Big 12 is their system. From what I heard today Clemson was about the only other team outside of the Big 12 to run a similar system. You get on a neutral court and play a team that is in your face for 40 min it takes you out of your game. That is how MU went so far last year. I just hope it carries over to this year.

Now if MU can't hit their buckets it don't matter.

Definitely. It also helps that WVU is only going to have one day to prepare for our press. I have WVU winning in my bracket but crazier things have happened. They don't have a huge size advantage over us and I think our guards can play with anyone if they hit their shots. We'll just have to wait and see. I don't have my hopes too high but I think we have a chance.

Found this over at PowerMizzou.com:

- The win pulls Mizzou’s all-time NCAA Tournament record to 22-22 and gives them a 4-1 mark in the last two seasons. In fact, Mizzou has won its last five NCAA Tournament opening-round games. Mizzou will play West Virginia on Sunday for a chance to advance to the Sweet Sixteen.

- Mizzou is also now 2-2 all-time against ACC opponents in the NCAA Tournament with wins over Miami and Clemson and losses to North Carolina and Duke. The Tigers are now 3-3 all time in the East Region of the NCAA Tournament bracket.

- The Tigers now have 54 wins over the past two seasons, one shy of the all-time mark by a Tiger team over a two-year span.

- Mizzou’s 15 steals in today’s game are the most ever by a Tiger team in an NCAA Tournament game. Their previous best was 12 against Texas all the way back in 1989.

- Mizzou finished the game with 21 assists. Under Mike Anderson, Mizzou is now 34-1 when dishing out at least 20 dimes in a single game. The lone loss in that span came against UConn in last year’s Elite Eight. Eight different Tigers handed out an assist in the game, highlighted by five from Tiller and four from Ramsey.

- The Tigers finished with an assist-to-turnover margin of 21-9 in the game. Over the Tigers’ last five NCAA Tournament game, they boast a 92:38 assist-to-turnover ratio. That is an average of 18.4 to 7.6.

- Mizzou finished the game with 15 steals, 13 more than Clemson. In fact, five Tigers finished the game with at least two steals, the same amount as the entire Clemson team. Tiller led the way with five take-aways, giving him 10 total over the last two games. As a side note, Clemson came into the game averaging 9.6 steals per game but was limited to just two in the game as Mizzou turned over the rock only nine times.

- Keith Ramsey finished the game with a career-high 20 points. His previous career-high was 15 points, set in the Tigers’ season-opener against UT-Martin.

- Four Tigers finished the game in double-figures, highlighted by 20 from Keith Ramsey and Kim English. Bowers finished the game with 15 points, his most since netting 16 in the Tigers’ win over Oklahoma State, while J.T. Tiller netted 10 points. Three other Tigers finished just one basket shy of double-digits with eight points each.

- The win marked the first time since the Tigers’ win at Colorado on Feb. 6 that Mizzou has had two players score more than 20 points.

- Mizzou dominated the paint in the game, outscoring Clemson 42-28 in the key. Mizzou also outscored Clemson 20-5 in points of turnovers and netted 20 more fast break points that Clemson at 22-2.

- Tiger forwards, who drew the assignment of guarding Trevor Booker, limited Clemson’s leading scorer to four points below his season average with just 11 points on 5-11 shooting.

From what I understand, though... WVU tends to start slow, and most of their wins have been close. So, I think we've got a decent shot.

That said, anything after today is gravy. This team has already exceeded preseason expectations.

So...here is a question that I've debated with another Tiger fan and would like to see what other Tiger faithful think...

Did the turnaround on this team begin when Demarre Carroll joined the Team? A lot can be said for the job that Mike Anderson has done with the guys he has brought in...but beyond what he has done, you always need a player whose work ethic rubs off on the rest of the team.

Carroll may not have as prolific numbers as guys like Sunvold, Stipo, Peeler, etc...but it's hard to overlook the change in the attitude of the team once he became a leader.

What does everyone else think?

I think Anderson just has a way to get maximum effort out of his players. You could say the same thing about most of the Mizzou players. He's been able to find success without much talent. You can't ask for much more than the Tigers have shown us the past couple seasons. I just can't wait for the program to keep improving so the recruits keep improving.

Ultimately, though, the selflessness of the system will limit our ability to get truly top flight recruits. I think that we can be a perennial top 20 team with Anderson here, but competing for NC's will be a bit scant (not that I'll complain about that).

I disagree. I think a lot of people around the nation enjoy watching Anderson's style of play and if they keep winning a lot more recruits are going to want to come to Columbia. They won't get the one and done stars that want to play 37 minutes per game, but I don't think those are the players MA wants anyways. Anderson hasn't had much time to actually go out and recruit. When he got here this team was still serving recruiting bans that eliminated visits to recruits. Next years recruiting class will really only be his 3rd one without the ban and it's already in the top 25. It's just going to get better IMO.

We have a five star forward and one of the top PGs in the country coming in next season. Consistent success can get us to the point where we can successfully recruit four stars and maybe pull in a five star every once in a while.

I don't care if we don't get the diva-type 1 and done types.

With what MA looks for for his system, I want to see him landing players out of that mindset that can shoot the three, bang the boards and defend inside, and I'd love to see him land some more that can drive inside like a fiend. We have a couple of good shooters now that have, what, 5 more seasons combines to give if they go 4 years and I see them getting more solid as they mature more. From what I've read on rivals, it seems there are some perfect fit big guys coming in next year. The only thing I would love to see changed is to get some driving type players that when the 3 isn't going in they can start driving like mad to get the shooters that are off more space to find their stroke.

As long as they keep things going strong in conference play and make the tournament, I see them getting to where they are a force each year in march because even if the BIG 12 starts to adjust over time to the pressing attack other teams that don't see them 2-3 times a year have a lot to figure out in 40 minutes of heck

Tony Parker led the NBA in points from the paint a few years ago.

MU is capable of that kind of game. Denmon and Dixon can both play it, as can Bowers. Even Tiller is far more effective in a slasher role than as a jump shooter.

It isn't surprising at all with as many fast break points as MU put up. Lots of layups, dunks and short jumpers from the boys.

It began when we purged the last of the entitled Snyder recruits.

No more of the Hortons, etc... that didn't have any interest in playing D. Lyons was the last of them and even he clearly never bought into the scheme (it was the fact that his talent perfectly fit it that made him useful).

It was an overall roster turnover that did it.

If MU can shoot like they shot in the 2nd half yesterday, I think they can win that game.

West Virginia may have trouble keeping pace if MU forces a fast tempo. The Mountaineers have shown a tendency to lose the ball, yet they have counteracted a marginally high TO rate with a good assist/TO margin.

West Virginia gained national attention and jumped to a 2-seed after winning the Big East tournament. But they beat three teams by a combined seven points, and none of those teams they beat are still playing in the NCAA tournament.

An upset is not guaranteed, but Missouri promises to make Sunday’s game interesting if they can just play like the team we all think they truly are.

What do you define as truly top-flight? If you're talking about guys like Wall, Rose, yeah, you're probably right. Guys that want to play 35 minutes, jack 20 shots and go one-and-done aren't probably options. Anderson isn't going to get (And wouldn't recruit) guys who are all about numbers.

But not all of the players of that status insist on playing in systems that let them do whatever.

Look at Greg Monroe at Georgetown. He plays in a very rigid offensive system that limits his numbers. Henry does, too.

There are always some of those players who aren't ALL about their numbers.

The current recruiting class is very good (best combo forward in the country, and a PG who lacks only elite size) with the possibility to be great with the potential addition of Ricardo Ratliffe (the top JUCO player in the country).

03-20-2010, 11:27 AM
Mizzou needs to be competitive on the glass to stay in the game, IMO.

Agree.

If Ramsey, Bowers and Moore give the same type of effort as against Clemson, the Tigers have a chance.

They'll have to shoot better than against Clemson (two good shooting halves vs. one).

WVU doesn't have a true post scorer or a true point guard. That opens the door a little bit.

DOn't get me wrong, though... WVU is tough as nails, Butler is a stud, and it's a tough matchup.
