The Missouri Tigers played the entire second half the same way they did at the end of the first half by putting up a lot of points against the Kennesaw St. Owls. Missouri outscored Kennesaw State 57-34 in the second half to win by 37 points. Missouri had five players in double figures and the two leading scorers were Ricardo Ratliffe and Michael Dixon who had 18 points apiece.
Missouri had one of their better shooting performances of the year tonight as they hit 60 percent of their shots from the field and they were able to more than double up on the free throw attempts 25 to 12. In fact, Missouri dominated in nearly every category tonight as they had the rebounding edge 35-24, 15 steals to eight, five blocks to one and had 10 less turnovers.
Kennesaw State was led by guard Delbert Love who scored a game high 27 points.
This was one of those games that was to give Missouri a warmup before they take on Illinois next Thursday, but before they do that they face William and Mary on Sunday.
