The Missouri men's basketball team defeated the Southern Ontario All-Stars 109-92 on Monday morning to complete a three-game sweep of exhibition play in Canada.

Leo Lyons led the Tigers with 20 points on 9-14 shooting and Zaire Taylor added 15 points and eight steals.

The All-Stars managed to keep the game close early with solid three-point shooting tying the game at one point 29-29. However, a 16-0 Missouri run late in the second quarter put the Tigers up for good and their lead swelled at one point to 31.
