"I think we're going to focus on being more aggressive," senior guard Drew Buggs said on Monday morning. "I think last time we were getting good looks. We just weren't making the shots."

The Tigers snapped their three-game losing streak with a win on Saturday against South Carolina. MU is now 14-6 overall and 7-6 in the SEC.

"After watching film, we got punched in the mouth when we went there," senior Mitchell Smith said on Monday morning. "With them coming back in here on Tuesday, it gives us a chance to really come out and show them how we play."
