Missouri men's basketball bounces back against Colorado

Missouri men’s basketball bounced back from a tough loss to Texas A&M on Wednesday night by taking down Colorado 84-66 in Boulder, Colo.

Sophomore guard Marcus Denmon put up a career-high 22 points as the Tigers shot an even 50 percent from the field to improve to 17-6 overall and 5-3 in Big 12 play. The win was MU’s second conference road win, to go along with a victory at Texas Tech on Jan. 13.

After its 32-game home win streak was snapped by the Aggies earlier in the week, Missouri was in need of a pick-me-up. The Tigers may have gotten it with a solid performance against CU.

Missouri had this one in hand pretty much the entire game, never relinquishing the lead it gained early in the first half. Denmon finished 6-of-8 from the field, including 4-of-6 from beyond the arc. Sophomore guard Kim English finished second on the Tigers in scoring with 21 points.

For the Buffaloes, freshman guard Alec Burks tallied a game-high 25 points.

The Tigers have now won seven-straight against Colorado and four consecutive games at the Coors Event Center.

Missouri gets back to action Wednesday night against Iowa State at Mizzou Arena.
