Mizzou's Tony Criswell To Miss UCLA Game With Broken Finger

Down a man at UCLA.

Scoop: Mizzou forward Tony Criswell broke his middle finger in his non-shooting hand on Saturday against Illinois, according to Steve Walentik of the Columbia Tribune

Significance: Criswell will miss the Tigers' non-conference tilt against UCLA on Friday night (9 p.m. Central, ESPN2) in Southern California. The junior will be reevaluated next week. 

Story: Criswell is a key front court reserve for the Tigers. He logged 22 minutes against Illinois, and is averaging six points and five rebounds this season. UCLA has a tall lineup so freshmen forwards Stefan Jankovic and Ryan Rosburg could fill in off the bench against the Bruins.
