COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Phil Pressey scored 21 points and Laurence Bowers added 14 - all in the second half - to help No. 14 Missouri rout Alcorn State 91-54 on Tuesday night.
After a rough first half, the Tigers (2-0) pulled away from the Braves. Missouri made just nine of its 39 attempts before the break and held a seven-point halftime advantage thanks to Pressey's deep 3-pointer with three seconds left.
Bowers hit three 3-pointers in the second half to help Missouri take command. The Tigers used an 18-3 run after the half to blow the game open.
