This should be a very exciting game to watch, as we have the battle of the Tigers in this matchup. Both teams were able to score a ton of points in their first game, but both teams also had some defensive struggles. Memphis was out rebounded by Jackson State, which has to be a concern, while they also let Jackson State shoot 46% from the field. I think Missouri is the better team in this matchup and they should win the rebounding battle. Take Missouri to get the win here.
