COLUMBIA, MO (RNN) - After a week off, Missouri is ready to play its next home game against Gardner-Webb on Saturday.

The Tigers (3-0) are coming off a neutral site win against Hawaii Nov. 16 in Kansas City, MO. Jabari Brown scored 23 points and Earnest Ross led with five assists and two steals.

The Bulldogs (2-2) are on the road for the third time this season. Both of their losses came from away games against Xavier and Furman. They are coming off a lopsided 92-51 victory over Allen University of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

This will be Mizzou's fourth game this season without head coach Frank Haith, whom the NCAA suspended for five games for his role in a scandal when he was head coach at Miami.

Missouri and Gardner-Webb are both part of the Las Vegas Invitational tournament, which takes place Nov. 28 and 29.

This is the first meeting between the two teams.

Tipoff at Mizzou Arena is at 3:30 p.m. ET.
