In their first outing since Saturday's monumental win over then-number three Baylor on the road, the #2 Missouri Tigers find themselves in a dogfight Wednesday night with Oklahoma State, trailing the Cowboys 37-36 at halftime.
Freshman G Brian Williams led the Cowboys with 11 first half points, and the team shot 57.1% from the field. Guards Keiton Paige and Le'Bryan Nash added 8 points apiece, as the Cowboys seek their first win over a ranked opponent in three tries this season.
The normally hot shooting Tigers missed on 20 of their 34 first half attempts, and managed only two three point field goals in the first twenty minutes of action. Senior G Marcus Denmon is doing his part, however, and he is well on his way to his season average of 17.6 points per game, finishing the half with 11 points.
