Baylor Vs. Missouri Halftime Update: Turnovers Costly For Bears, Missouri Leads 33-29

The Baylor Bears have seven turnovers compared to the Missouri Tigers two in the first half as the Tigers have a 33-29 lead over the Bears in Waco, Texas.

Phil Pressey has lead the charge for the Tigers as his game-leading 12 points, with three three-pointers, has given the Bears defense fits in the first half. Pressey was the only Tiger to get to the line, and Frank Haith's team has relied heavily on the three-pointer with six made thus far.

Perry Jones III has been bottled up by the Tigers defense, as his 4 points on 2-of-8 shooting has left something to be desired by Scott Drew and the Baylor fans. However, the Bears have received a nice contribution from Anthony Jones and Quincy Miller, combining for 16 points at the half.

A win for Baylor would get them right back in the Big 12 conference race, but a loss would all but eliminate them from title contention.
