Utah State vs Missouri

Utah State vs Missouri, Thursday at 1:40 PM ET
We should see plenty of points from beyond the arc with each offense shooting very well from deep (11th – Utah St & 75th – Mizzou) while both defense rank outside the top 200 defending the arc. Both teams shoot very well from the FT line (each around 76%) so when they get there they should convert at a high percentage.

Defensively, Mizzou is the 2nd worst in the SEC efficiency wise ahead of only South Carolina. They rank outside the top 225 defensively in PPG allowed, FG% allowed, and 3 point FG% allowed. While USU is a little bit better defensively, they aren’t great ranking 184th in PPG allowed and 294th in 3 point FG% defense. Missouri’s most comparable team in the Mountain West in regards to offensive efficiency, defensive efficiency and pace is New Mexico. In their 2 games vs the Lobos they total 157 and 167 total points.

Both teams are among the fastest paced teams in the country and they rank in the top 20 in both offensive efficiency and eFG%. Each team averages 80 PPG on the season. Two fast paced teams in this one, both with dynamic offenses should lead to a high scoring game. Both offenses are the strengths of each team and I'm predicting a high scoring game here.
