Three TV takeaways from Missouri's 70-68 victory at Auburn on Saturday afternoon:

After the Tigers lost to Georgia on Wednesday night, coach Frank Haith said he was most disappointed by a lack of toughness shown by his players. To win on the road, Haith added, Missouri would have to be tougher. He promised they would be, too.
Tougher the Tigers were Saturday afternoon. They dominated the boards (54-33), allowed few uncontested shots and came away with more than their share of scrums for loose balls.
Touch, however, is what they lacked. The Tigers had their second straight bad shooting game, finishing at 32.7 percent (17 for 52) after shooting 39.3 percent against Georgia. At one point in the first half, they were 5 for 23.

Missouri coach Frank Haith was upset with the lack of toughness his team played with against Georgia. He wasn't happy with the lack of passing by his point guard and leading scorer, Jordan Clarkson, either. Haith could have added a lack of production from his front court to his list of disappointments.
