Missouri uses 19-0 start to rip William and Mary

COLUMBIA, Mo. — About the only drama in Missouri’s 94-56 win against William & Mary on Sunday at Mizzou Arena was when, and at times it looked like if, William & Mary would score.

The Tribe finally broke through on a 3-pointer by Matt Rum with 8:29 left in the first half. The basket was of little consequence as Michael Dixon scored a career-high 30 points to help lead 10th-ranked Missouri to an 11-0 start for the first time since the 1991-92 season.

“The ball just wouldn’t go in,” Missouri coach Frank Haith said of William and Mary’s nearly 12-minute scoreless drought to start the game. “Our defense was probably a pretty big factor in that, and we played pretty sound defense.”
