KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Senior center Jeremiah Tilmon’s presence was felt Saturday for the slumping No. 20 University of Missouri men's basketball team (14-6, 7-6).

Rebounding from a two-game absence, the veteran stabilized an otherwise up and down offensive lineup, hitting every shot (4-4 FGs, 7-7 FTs) en route to an important 93-78 conference win.

Counzo Martin notched career win number 250 with the victory.

Five Tigers finished the game in double figures. Pinson poured in 16, along with 13 apiece from Mark and Dru Smith. Kobe Brown powered the Tigers early before finishing with 12 total.

Missouri hosts the University of Mississippi (12-8) on Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 8 p.m.
