For the second consecutive game, Missouri was limited to less than 20 assists. The Tigers had their lowest assist total of the season in Tuesday’s road game against Wichita State, dishing out 14. And in Sunday’s game against Southeast Missouri State , Mizzou posted his worst assist-to-rotation ratio of the season with 17 cents and 14 turnovers. .
SEMO Head Coach Brad Korn thought it was his team’s offense that kept the Tigers from getting comfortable.
“I really think we were able to disrupt them a bit because of the way we were able to shoot the ball,” Korn said. “And so I think that maybe cut the wind a little bit from their sails. And also what it does is everything is a compound effect. And now they’re maybe trying to get down and force the issue a bit more and now those looks aren’t the same.
Missouri’s assist totals have been an indicator of how well the team has performed in every game this season. In the five games the Tigers won by a double-digit margin, they also had over 20 assists. In the four games the Tigers won by seven points or less, they also had 20 or fewer assists.
The team has consistently had a positive assists-to-rotation ratio in its nine games and still ranks in the top 30 in the nation in assists per goals scored. But if Mizzou is unable to keep the ball moving or has his rhythm disrupted, it has been much more difficult for the team to put games aside.
The first team that keeps the Tigers at a negative assist-to-rotation ratio could also hand them their first loss.
