COLUMBIA — The Missouri men's basketball team defeated Iowa State 65-56 on Wednesday night in front of 11,760 at Mizzou Arena.

The Tigers shot poorly and played subpar defense all night, failing to get the home crowd involved in the game. Iowa State played with just eight scholarship players, but Missouri didn't take advantage of its depth and let the Cyclones hang around until the final two minutes. Not until Kim English made a 3-pointer with 1:45 left was the game in hand for the Tigers, who move to 18-6 (6-3 Big 12) with the win.

Missouri guard J.T. Tiller led Missouri with 17 points, his strongest offensive performance of the season.
