Missouri Vs. Texas Prediction: USA Today Expects Tigers Scorers To Overwhelm Longhorns

If the Missouri Tigers have anything to really worry about tonight in Austin for their game against the Texas Longhorns, it’s going to come in the form of leading scorer J’Covan Brown. Other than that, the Tigers should be just fine. That’s what the USA Today believes about tonight’s game, and that’s not too far off, just as long as Missouri can find a way to bottle Brown’s 19+ points per game.

The USA Today preview states, “Keep Brown at bay and Texas simply doesn’t have the talent to run with the big boys in the Big 12 this year. Obviously that is easier said than done, so expect the Longhorns’ star to get his, but for the Tigers to prevail just the same, as they put forth another balanced offensive attack.”

Missouri is 19-2 this season, so if there’s any team on the ropes from the outset, it’s the Longhorns. However, Oklahoma State showed just several days ago that any team — even a likely top seed in the NCAA tournament — is vulnerable on the road if the timing is right (or wrong). Frank Haith will have his team ready for the challenge ahead, knowing Texas is a tough place to play.
