Northern Kentucky is coming into the game after picking up a win in their first game. Granted the win was against a local college that is affiliated with UC, but the score was a 50 point win for the Norse and was very impressive in the way the Norse were able to score offensively.

Bryson Langdon managed to lead the Norse in scoring in the last game with 20 points a game on 70% shooting from the field. Dantez Walton managed to get 6 defensive board and 3 offensive boards in the game. Jalen Tate managed to get 4 assist in the game with only a single turnover.

Missouri is coming into the game here after picking up a win in their first game of the year as well. The Tigers offense only managed to get 82 points in the game over UIW, but the defense only gave up 42 points in the game.

The Tigers were led in the scoring by Jeremiah Tilmon who shot 77.8% from the field and scored 16 points a game. Javon Picket pulled down 4 offensive and 4 defensive boards to lead the Tigers in the rebounding department. Dru Smith managed to get 5 assist in the opening game and turned the ball over 2 times.

Northern Kentucky has really been impressive on the year so far and with a triple digit performance really looked impressive. Look for the performance to continue in this game for the Norse who should be able to hang in with Missouri, but the Tigers are playing at home and have a chance to play slightly better to bring home the win in this game. Final Score Prediction, Missouri Tigers win but do not cover 78-70.

Pick:
Northern Kentucky Norse +12.5
