The Missouri Tigers handed Wichita State basketball its second loss of the season, 82-72, at Mizzou Arena on Dec. 3. 

Missouri led Wichita State from buzzer to buzzer, with the Shockers coming as close as two points on multiple occasions. 

The Shockers were plagued by shooting woes and turnovers at the hands of Mizzou’s defense, shooting 27% from the 3-point line and committing 18 turnovers. 

The Tigers were able to convert those turnovers into 20 points, with Noah Carter and Sean East II leading Missouri with three steals apiece.

Redshirt junior guard Harlond Beverly led Wichita State in turnovers with seven on the night, which accompanied 12 points and a career-high 17 rebounds.

Junior Colby Rogers led the Shockers’ offense with 17 points and four rebounds, matching his total from Wichita State’s last outing against Richmond.

Four Shockers scored double figures: Beverly, Rogers, junior Xavier Bell and redshirt sophomore Isaac Abidde, who came off the bench.

Men’s basketball will face off against South Dakota State in their annual game at Intrust Bank Arena on Saturday, Dec. 9. The Jackrabbits look to improve above .500 as the Shockers aim to keep a perfect record within Wichita city limits. The two teams will tip off at 6 p.m.
