Junior Kevin Puryear finished with 12 points and 10 rebounds. Freshman Jontay Porter had 10 points and seven rebounds.

Mizzou was just 4-18 from three-point range and 20-48 from the field, but the Tigers were still able to pull out the win. Mizzou did shoot 15-17 from the free throw line.

Meanwhile, MU held Tennessee to 39 percent shooting from the field and 24 percent shooting from three-point range.

Up next, Mizzou will play Texas A&M on the road on Saturday at 3 p.m.

We will update this story with full highlights and reaction from the Tigers as soon as possible.
