The Tigers were without starting point guard Wes Clark Tuesday night, but still were able to sneak away with a victory over Southeastern Missouri 65-61.

Anderson said Clark has been suspended indefinitely for violating team guidelines, but refused to comment further.

In Clark’s absence, Keith Shamburger had an expanded role and he took advantage.

In 39 minutes, he scored 11 points. Efficiency was the name of the game for Shamburger, he was 4-5 from the field and 3-4 from the three-point line.

Freshman Montaque Gill-Caesar also played a huge role at the guard position, adding 15 points of his own. Johnathan Williams III provided the biggest push to replace Clark’s offensive output, scoring 18 points and while grabbing 11 boards.

Tramaine Isabell provided a spark off of the bench for the Tigers, as the freshman guard scored eight points.

The difference for Missouri in the matchup was their three-point shooting. The team made six of their seven three-point attempts in the second half and went 8-15 overall.
