These are basic stats but they tell a story:
When Oriakhi plays at least 25 minutes in a game, MU is 16-3.
When Oriakhi plays less than 25 minutes, MU is 7-6.
When Oriakhi scores at least 10 points in a game this season, Mizzou is 15-3.
When Oriakhi has at least 10 rebounds in a game, Mizzou is 13-2.
When Oriakhi posts a double-double (points and rebounds) the Tigers are 10-1.
When Phil Pressey is shooting less it equals more wins.
When Pressey attempts fewer than 10 shots in a game this season, the Tigers are 14-2.
When Pressey attempts 10 or more shots in a game, the Tigers are 9-7.
If only Coach Haith got this through to these freakin kids. Get Oriakhi the ball and take the ball away from Pressey when he wants to shoot.
Bacon-wrapped shrimp: My first-favorite food wrapped around my third-favorite food. I'd go to a banquet in honor of those Somali pirates if they served bacon-wrapped shrimp.
