MU nets second win in Canada.

Monday, September 1, 2008 | 1:19 a.m. CDT

The Missouri men's basketball team built a 53-30 halftime lead and rode the momentum to a 117-68 victory over host Brock University in preseason play Sunday in St. Catherines, Ontario, Canada.

The teams combed for 53 turnovers, but Missouri's offense was effective. Two freshmen guards led the scoring for the Tigers. Marcus Denmon scored 23 and Miguel Paul 17. Missouri outrebounded the Badgers 42-27 and forced 35 turnovers.

This victory follows a win on Saturday against the Ontario All-Stars. The Tigers wrap up their preseason visit to Canada with a 9 a.m. game today against the Southern Ontario All-Stars.
