Jordan Clarkson leads Mizzou with an average 19.4 points per game. Jabari Brown is right on his heels with an average 19.3 points per game.

The Mountaineers (6-2) left the Big East and joined the Big 12 in 2012. They are coming off a 96-47 win over Loyola (MD).

Eron Harris leads West Virginia with an average 20.3 points per game.

The game is part of the 2013 Big 12/SEC Challenge. The Big 12 leads 2-1 so far.

Tipoff at Mizzou Arena is at 7 p.m. ET and will air on ESPN2.
