The Missouri TIgers and Kansas State Wildcats enter halftime with K-State up 41-38. The Wildcats jumped out to a quick 10-0 lead to start the game and guard Jacob Pullen was simply on fire early.
He started the game 4-of-4 including 3-of-3 from beyond the three-point line. He was the driving force behind KSU getting an early advantage but a pair of personal fouls put him on the bench allowing Mizzou to get back in it. Pullen has 15 points at the half hitting on 5-of-6 shots, 3-of-3 from beyond the arc and 2-of-3 from the free throw line.
If Pullen can stay out of foul trouble in the second half, it looks like he's having one of those days where he can keep K-State in the game. Pullen, in his last three games, has scored 38, 27 and 27 points. He's on his way to another big game here.
Mizzou's Laurence Bowers leads the Tigers in scoring with 12 points hitting on 3-of-5 shots including 6-of-7 from the free throw line, and five rebounds. Michael Dixon's added seven points shooting 3-of-5 from the field while Phil Pressey and Marcus Denmon have added six points each.
We expected a tight game and through one half that's what we've got. Mizzou is down, 41-38..
