The Missouri Tigers are having a rough basketball season. Currently, their record is 6-7, and they hold last place in the SEC conference. Mizzou is facing some big problems this season, and many fans believe it is time to make a change before the season ends. The Tigers have been a disappointment, and at this rate, chances of them making it past the first round of the SEC tournament seem unlikely.
The Tigers are struggling to score points as the team is only averaging 66.6 points per game. The team is being challenged by difficult point break plays and undynamic pick and rolls. They are also averaging 14.1 turnovers per game. This is not the recipe for success.
The Missouri Tigers Have Three Standout Players
There are multiple reasons why the Tigers are doing poorly this season. There still is time to improve their record. They still have eighteen regular-season games and the SEC tournament to play in. That gives them a good chance to learn from their mistakes and make a comeback during the rest of the season. The Tigers still have some good things going for them. The team has three stand-out players to watch out for on the court. Javon Pickett, Kobe Brown, Amari Davis are standouts on the team this season.
Javon Pickett, a senior from Belleville Illinois is a standout on the court scoring on an average 9.5 points per game and in the 20-21 season he was the go-to Sixth Man, despite dealing with an ankle injury most of the second half of the season. Another player to watch out for is Amari Davis a junior from Trotwood Ohio he averaged 11.9 points so far this season and in the 20-21 season Davis made a Career 47-percent shooter from the field and 75.1 percent shooter from the foul line, making 80.4 percent of his attempts at the charity stripe in 20-21.
The final player to watch out for is Kobe Brown a junior from Huntsville Alabama is a great asset to the team. Brown is making an average of 15 points per game making him one of the most effective members in the team. In the 20-21 season he Started all 26 games as a sophomore, chipping 8.0 points and 6.2 boards in 21.3 minutes per game.
The Tigers will have a lot of work to do if they want to improve their record but it is early enough for them to make a turnaround. Dedicated Mizzou fans shouldn’t be giving up hope for this season. There still is a long way to go.
