Missouri has to work for victory over Navy
Saturday, December 10, 2011
COLUMBIA — Missouri’s ninth win of the season looked very similar to its first eight wins from a statistics standpoint.
The Tigers shot nearly 50 percent from the field, held their opponent to less than 60 points and won by a large margin.
And while the outcome was never in doubt, it was a different type of victory for the Tigers, one that doesn’t always show up in the box score. The 10th-ranked Tigers had to work for everything they got in an 84-59 victory against Navy Saturday at Mizzou Arena.
