Web Extra: Mizzou hoops prepares for No. 21 Xavier

Andrew Kauffman

The Mizzou men's basketball team has its first road game of the year on Tuesday at 6 p.m. against No. 21 Xavier.

"We are all highly confident right now," Junior center Jeremiah Tilmon said. "We are feeling real good, so we're going to let our confidence just take us a long way. We're just going to play hard."

The Tigers are 3-5 all-time against the Musketeers, but MU beat Xavier by 15 points last year in Columbia, Mo. Jeremiah Tilmon had a career-high 23 points and 10 rebounds in the Tigers' 71-56 win.

"I think the best - they strive in moments of adverse situations when you're on the road," Head coach Cuonzo Martin said. "I think it brings out the best in you. I enjoyed playing on the road - just having the opportunity to beat an opponent and silence the crowd."

"It would be good for our program. I mean we all want to win, so it'll be a good look for us to win," Sophomore guard Xavier Pinson said.
