Playing North Florida gave the Tigers an excellent opportunity to work on their perimeter defense. The Ospreys launch an average of 30 three-pointers a game. Mizzou was ready for that, hassling them into 23 misses in 28 attempts from beyond the arc in its easy 85-51 victory at Mizzou Arena. Playing the role of Michael Porter Jr., stand-in Jordan Barnett (above) attacked North Florida off the wing for 21 points and 11 rebounds.
