Missouri routs Fairleigh Dickinson 87-36
COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP)—Kim English had a game-high 20 points to lead Missouri past Fairleigh Dickinson 87-36 Saturday night.
Eleven of English’s points came in the first 3 1/2 minutes of the game. The victory pushes Missouri’s home winning streak to 24 games.
Terence Grier led the Knights (1-10) with 12 points. It was Fairleigh Dickinson’s lowest-scoring game this season.
The Tigers (6-3) burst out of the gates in the second half with a 20-0 run to pull away from the Knights, holding the Fairleigh Dickinson without a field goal for the first 8:53 of the half.
The stifling Missouri defense forced 26 Knight turnovers and held the visitors to just 21 percent from the floor, including a lackluster 3 of 22 from three-point range.
