Missouri is a mature team, starting 2 seniors, 1 junior and 2 grad students:
Gilbert transferred in this year; Judd and Kroenke are true freshmen. Everyone else played last year.
Kitley will, as usual, be the tallest player on the court and should dominate inside; although Missouri has outrebounded their opponents by 7 reb/game so far this season. Like most teams they are stronger on defense than offense on the boards; in the WF game, Wake managed 13 offensive boards and was only outrebounded by 3 overall.
They average a little over 5 made 3's per game on 19 attempts for 30.1%. Only Frank and Troup average more than 30% from 3.
They average 15.5 TO per game, but only had 9 against WF. Their Assist to TO ratio is about 1:1.
Missouri was 18-13, 7-9 in the SEC last year and lost to Drake in the first round of the WNIT.
That's all I know. We look like the better team and Kitley should get her usual double-double. If we get our 3 ball touch back, this should be a win for the Hokies.
