Halftime: Missouri 48, Texas Tech 44

The Missouri Tigers head into halftime with a narrow 48-44 lead over the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Missouri leading scorer Marcus Denmon leads the Tigers with 13 points, while Red Raider guard John Roberson leads all scorers with 15 points.

After shooting a dismal 29.3 percent from the field against the Jayhawks last weekend, the Tigers are 20-38 (52 percent) in the first half. Despite the hot shooting, Missouri racked up 11 fouls leading to 14 points off free throws by Texas Tech.

The Tigers have also gotten exceptional play from senior forward Justin Safford, who has struggled all season coming off of ACL surgery last year. Safford chipped in 8 points on 4 of 6 shooting in the half.
