Rotterdam, Netherlands — The Missouri basketball team beat Rotterdam 87-64 Friday in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

The game was the first of five the Tigers will play during their 10-day tour of Europe that includes visits to Holland, Belgium and France.

Redshirt senior guard Keion Bell and redshirt junior guard Earnest Ross led the Tigers with 17 points each. Junior forward Tony Criswell scored 15 points shooting 7-9 on field goals. Ross and Criswell recorded eight rebounds each, while Bell had five.

Redshirt senior forward Laurence Bowers and junior point guard Phil Pressey did not play. Missouri coach Frank Haith said at a press conference that neither would play during the team's trip to Europe. Pressey is being held out because of a minor knee sprain. Haith won't play Bowers, who missed all of last season with a torn ACL, because he does not want to risk another injury.
