It’s exhibition season in college basketball. The first few weeks full of games that don’t count and a time when teams work out the kinks in their respective systems.
There might not be another major college basketball program that needs this time more that Missouri. With 11 new players, they’ll need as much time together as they can get.
The transfers had the showing Tigers fans probably wanted to see, Auburn transfer Earnest Ross scored a team-high 22 points about six rebounds while Pepperdine transfer Keion Bell poured in 20 points. Phil Pressey, the Southeastern Conference Preseason Player of the Year, dished out 11 assists in the win.
More important than the win, the Tigers got huge production from the transfers and since the team consists of five from four-year schools, they’ll need to get up to speed as quickly as possible.
It’s an exhibition against a Division II team. But hey, it’s a start.
