It looks like Houston Christian got the smaller half of the wishbone at Thanksgiving dinner. They took a 76-67 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Rice Owls.

As for the Tigers, they have more to be thankful for after their game against the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers on Wednesday. Mizzou put a hurting on Coastal Carolina at home to the tune of 89-51. It was another big night for Mizzou's guard D'Moi Hodge, who had 18 points and seven assists along with five steals and five boards. This makes it four games in a row in which Hodge has had at least three steals.
