Columbia, MO (Sports Network) - No Laurence Bowers, no problem for Missouri. At least not against Vanderbilt.
Jabari Brown had 21 points, Alex Oriakhi matched a career high with 18 points and the 22nd-ranked Tigers remained unbeaten at home by crushing the Commodores, 81-59.
Oriakhi also grabbed 12 rebounds for the Tigers (15-4, 4-2 SEC), who improved to 12-0 at Mizzou Arena this season. Phil Pressey supplied 12 points and six assists.
Missouri played its fifth straight game without Bowers, who was averaging a team-best 16.8 points before spraining his right MCL earlier this month against Alabama. The Tigers needed a second-half surge Tuesday to get by South Carolina but took control of Saturday's game with a 32-2 burst in the first half.
Rod Odom paced Vanderbilt (8-10, 2-4) with 17 points.
