Colorado State Rams vs Missouri Tigers takes place in the NCAA 2013 tournament second round on Thursday night as March Madness college basketball gets well underway. This should be one of the most competitive games of the round and there is not much between the teams. The game is scheduled to tip off at 9.20 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
These two sides are both strong rebounding teams. CSU in particular has been in the top two in offensive and defensive rebounding efficiency all season. However, the Tigers have a plus 9.6 rebounding margin, meaning they also will pose a threat on the glass.
The Tigers finished 11-7 in the conference since moving to the SEC this year. They have been less than impressive since reaching the Elite Eight in 2009, and will be hoping to make a bigger impact this year. However, they come up against a tough opponent today, who in many ways has similar strengths to them, meaning the side which can hold its nerve and be the most efficient under pressure will likely come out on top.
The winner of the game can look forward to a third round tie against either No. 1 Louisville or No. 16 North Carolina AT&T.
