The Missouri Tigers have had a maddening habit of slow starts this season.

It's one they want to break, starting tonight against the Georgetown Hoyas.

"It's just something we have to fix," junior forward Lawrence Bowers said as the ninth-ranked Tigers (5-0) prepared to face the 16th-ranked Hoyas (6-0) at 8 p.m. at the Sprint Center in Kansas City.

The game will be televised on ESPNU.
