Mizzou is coming off a 72-63 win against Gardner-Webb. The Tigers led the Runnin' Bulldogs by only two points in the first half, 31-29, following foul problems. They pulled away in the second half, outscoring the Bulldogs 41-34. Earnest Ross led the Tigers with 17 points.

Missouri and IUPUI are both part of the Las Vegas Invitational tournament, which takes place Nov. 28 and 29.
