Mizzou prepares for rematch with Tennessee

COLUMBIA, Mo (KMIZ)

The No.19 Mizzou men's basketball team will make the trip to Knoxville, Tennessee for a rematch with No. 6 Tennessee on Saturday.

The game will tip off at 7:30 P.M. at Thompson-Boling Arena.

The last time the two teams met, the Tigers fell by 20 points in the SEC opener, going just 36 percent from the field.

However, heading into round two, Cuonzo Martin's group is on a much different streak, a winning streak.

Meanwhile, the Tennessee Volunteers are coming off of an embarrassing, 75-49 loss against Florida.
