The Missouri Tigers have been knocked because of their continued inability to show up for road games. On Saturday, they're in Manhattan to play the Kansas State Wildcats and guard Jacob Pullen isn't making their road woes any better.
Pullen is simply lighting it up in the beginning of this game. At the 16 minute mark in the first half, Pullen had 11 of K-State's 15 points going 4-for-4 from the field including 3-of-3 from beyond the three-point line.
Pullen's last three games include a 38-point outburst against then-No. 1 Kansas and two consecutive 27-point games. We said coming into this game he'd be a key because of how well he's playing and obviously that's the case.
It's still early in the game but K-State leads Mizzou 15-7 and Pullen looks like he's ready to lead them to victory. Luckily for the Tigers, though, we're only a few minutes into the game.
Good start for K-State. We'll see how long it lasts.
