Missouri Vs. Navy Final Score: Tigers Easily Defeat Midshipmen, 84-59

The No. 10 ranked Missouri Tigers had no issue defeating the Navy Midshipmen, and won 84-59 to improve to 9-0. Missouri used a big first half to put away Navy up early, and led 45-26 at the end of the first half. In the second half Missouri was able to cruise to victory and never allowed Navy to mount any comeback in this game.

Navy tried to hang around in this game with the three-point shot, but the shots were not falling as Navy ended up making only eight out of 25 three-point shots. The main difference in this game was the disparity in free throws where Missouri had 28 attempts to Navy's 12. 

Missouri had all five starters in double figures with Marcus Denmon leading the way with 22 points, while Navy's  J.J. Avila led all scorers with 26 points.
