NCAABB: Missouri Tigers vs Texas Tech Red Raiders

Kim English and his Missouri teammates like to work the ball inside and establish a post presence. That plan took a backseat Saturday for the Tigers (No. 8 ESPN/USA Today, No. 7 AP), who hit a season-best 16 3-pointers in an 81-59 win over Texas Tech.

“You never go into the game plan to shoot a lot of 3s,” said English, who scored 20 points to lead the Tigers. “But we are guards and we take what the defense gives us and we were just fortunate to knock down some shots off some really nice passes. Those passes gave us some really nice looks.”
Marcus Denmon added 17 points, all in the second half when he went 5 for 8 from long range, and Ricardo Ratliffe finished with 13 points and a career-high 15 rebounds for Missouri.
