(COLUMBIA, Mo.) The Rebels were the first team to make Missouri scratch their heads in their new conference surroundings. Ole Miss knocked off the Tigers by 15 points in their first meeting back on Jan. 15.
Saturday, No. 21 Mizzou avenged that loss with a 98-79 outburst against the Rebels. The Tigers (17-6, 6-4) remain perfect at home, but have still yet to win a road game this year.
Alex Oriakhi finished with a double double, scoring a career-high 22 points to go with 18 rebounds. Keion Bell poured in 21.
Phil Pressey also had 22 points, but his four assists shined as they put him ahead of Anthony Peeler for the all-time assist lead in program history.
Missouri also matched a season-high with 12 3-pointers.
