English continued his torrid start to the season with a career-high 29 points as the 21st ranked Tigers rolled to an 88-59 win against the winless Bearcats at Mizzou Arena.

The senior from Baltimore, Md., hit six of his seven 3-pointers in the first half as Missouri improved to 6-0 for the first time since the 2006-07 season.
