They have held every opponent except LVille under 42% from the field and are currently 14th in the nation allowing teams to shoot just 35.5% from the field..
This is Mizzous 1st true road game, but its during break so it wont be like a mid January game. Bruins have faced 2 decent teams ; GTown and SDSt, and have lost both.
Mizzou is one of the deepest teams in the nation with a solid transfer class this year (Brown, Oriachi, Ross, & Bell) to go with Pressey & Bowers. Mizzou has 9 guys averaging 11 mins or more (as does UCLA, but productivity drops way off)
Pressey is better than Shabazz and the Mizzou bigs are better than the Wear boys and freshman Jordan Adams is gonna find it a little tougher going imo.....
Bruins just gave up 78 on 47% shooting to Fresno St, a team that averages 59 and shoots 38% and is not in the top 300 in just about any major offensive category.....
However, with the crazy things I saw in college football yesterday.....who knows!
Mizzou +2.5 (BIG - almost Large)
Mizzou 1st h/game +225
Mizzou -20.5 +3000
