COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) Missouri hadn't yet hit the panic button in Southeastern Conference play, but the Tigers' fingers were getting awfully itchy.
"We needed this one bad," Missouri forward Jeremiah Tilmon said following the Tigers' 66-43 thumping of Texas A&M on Saturday. "We started off in the SEC real slow so this was a big confidence builder."
Jordan Geist scored 17 points and Tilmon added 14 as Missouri dominated A&M over the game, quieting an already subdued crowd in a half-full arena. Missouri (10-6, 1-4) won its first league game while A&M (7-9, 1-4) lost its fourth consecutive home game.
