Missouri turned things around from behind the arc in the second half against Utah State, but the emergence of Kobe Brown was the difference for the Tigers. He was consistently making big shots and using his size to bully Utah State. D’Moi Hodge continues to be a reliable presence in the backcourt for Mizzou, who will like its chances in this one.

Princeton had to fight back late against Arizona, and got some key defensive stops late to take down the Wildcats. The Ivy League champions managed to defend well without fouling, only giving Arizona seven free throws for the game. That is important against an aggressive Missouri squad.
