Russell Woods recorded his first career double double with 15 points and 10 boards, and Puryear added a team high 19. MU finished strong for a 26 point home win in what is likely the last win of the Kim Anderson era.

14. Western Kentucky (247) : Losers of 3 straight by an avg margin of 23 points heading into Mizzou Arena, Western Kentucky jumped out to an early lead as the Tigers faced their typical early game struggles.

Hughes scored 18 for the Tigers in front of 4,547 announced attendance.

13. Tulane (262) : Facing a Tulane squad that went 12-22 the prior season in the 7th place game of the Tire Pros Invitational, MU fell behind early and trailed by 10 at halftime after only scoring 22 points.

12. Oral Roberts (206) : Missouri extended its winning streak to 2 games, their longest of the '14-'15 season, with a win at home vs Oral Roberts. Despite leading for only 55 seconds in the first half, the Tigers use an amazing 8 for 9 shooting behind the 3 point line in the second half (to Oral Robert’s 0 for 9 behind the arc) to pull away.

11. SEMO (233) : Back at home against in state opponent SEMO, MU trails the first 36 minutes of the game but is able to rally late due to hitting 6 of 7 behind the arc in the second half to win by 4. SEMO would go 13-17 on the season.

10. Wofford (187) : To open the 2016 season, MU faced a Wofford team that would go on to finish 15-17 in the opening game of the CBE Classic. Playing in his first collegiant game, freshman Kevin Puryear would burst onto the scene with a 20 point performance, and Namon Wright would come off the bench with 18 points and 7 boards.

9. Auburn (189) : Despite falling behind early with only 11 points midway through the first half against SEC foe Auburn who went 11-20 on the year, MU went on a 21-3 run to end the first half on top. The Tigers held on for a 15 point victory, their largest in SEC play under Kim Anderson.

8. Omaha (148) : MU took the court against the 4-5 Omaha team from the Summit League and behind an 18 point / 8 rebound performance by Kevin Puryear was able to secure a 7 point victory.

7. Northern Illinois (165) : Northern Illinois came into the contest a perfect 7-0, but MU started the game on a 12-0 run and held a 1 point lead at halftime. The Tiger defense held N. Illinois to under 35% shooting on the game and came away with a 7 point victory

6. Auburn (139) : On senior night against an Auburn squad that would go 15-20 on the season, MU would overcome a 7 point deficit with 3 minutes to play thanks to the inspired play of Keith Shamburger who led the Tigers in points, rebounds, and assists in his final college game.

5. Tennessee (103) : MU set a Kim Anderson era attendance record of 10,536 thanks to a free ticket giveaway in the Ralley for Rhyan promotion, and the Tigers would ambush the eventual 15-19 Volunteers with 21 points from the emerging Ryan Rosburg on 8 of 9 shooting from the field. The Tigers raised over $50,000 for pediatric cancer and came away with an 11 point victory.

4. Florida (34) : Following a program record 13 game losing streak, MU would return home to face a Florida team that would finish 16-17 on the season and that was without its 2 leading scorers. The Tigers would hold the Gators to only 52 points, and freshman Namon Wright would explode for 28 points on 10 of 13 shooting to nearly single handidly carry the Tigers to victory.

3. South Carolina (58) : Facing 21-5 South Carolina team, MU rode the now dominant Ryan Rosburg to victory via an 18 point performance in which he got to the line 17 times. KJ Walton converted a basket with 35 seconds remaining to give MU a 3 point lead, and the Tigers held on for a 72-67 win that essentially knocked S. Carolina out of the NCAA tournament.

2. Valpo (65) : Bouncing back from the worst home loss in program history, the Tigers secured what would turn out to be a quality win at home against Valpo for Kim Anderson’s first career D1 victory. Facing an opponent who would go 28-5 in the other contests on the season, MU would hold Valpo to 29 points below their season average. Coming off a 27 point performance, Valpo’s leading scorer Alec Peters would be held to only 2 field goals in an extremely low scoring 56-41 Tiger win.

1. LSU (49) : In the SEC opener, the Tiger would defeat what was probably their most talented team they bested all season in an LSU team coached by Johnie Jones that had won 8 in a row coming into the contest. The talented LSU frontcourt duo of Martin and Mickey came into the game avging 35 ppg and MU’s frontcourt held them to a combined 18. MU would come back from double digits down and despite allowing a 3 pointer with a 3 point lead to send the game to overtime, the Tigers would outscore LSU 9-2 in the extra period to collect the win and start out SEC play 1-0.
