No. 13 Missouri Tigers Host Oral Roberts At Mizzou Arena

The 13th ranked Missouri Tigers will return to the court on Thursday evening as they host Oral Roberts at Mizzou Arenas. The Tigers are 8-1 on the season and have won three in a row after losing in overtime to Georgetown. Mizzou's most recent victory comes over Presbyterian last week, 70-55. Mizzou looks to extend their 52-game home winning streak in non-conference games.

Oral Roberts enters the game at 4-5 and coming off of a loss against Oklahoma last weekend, 73-60. Mizzou fans should remember Oral Roberts as the Tigers have beaten them in five of their six all-time meetings. The last time they played it was the Golden Eagles that took home a one-point victory in Tulsa last year.

SB Nation's Rock M Nation remembers that game last year and has some thoughts

Dominique Morrison is a stud.  We learned that when ORU and Mizzou played last year -- he had 21 points, seven rebounds (four offensive) and four assists in 38 minutes last year -- and he has backed it up with a solid junior season.  He does not take many 3-pointers (only 25 of his 114 field goal attempts are 3's), and he draws quite a few fouls, shooting five free throws per game.  If ORU makes it two in a row against Mizzou, it's because Morrison was unbelievable.

Remember that name: Dominique Morrison.
