    COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Leo Lyons scored 15 of his 21 points in his first half and led Missouri to an 86-65 victory over the Prairie View A&M Panthers in the season opener on Saturday.

    Missouri led by as many as 24 in the second half despite shooting just 43 percent from the field.

    Freshmen guards Miguel Paul and Marcus Denmon combined to shoot five-of-nine from beyond the arc in their first regular season college game.

    Denmon was one of four Missouri players in double figures, scoring 15 points, while DeMare Carroll added 19 points and nine rebounds. A frenetic Missouri defense forced the Panthers (0-2) into 25 turnovers, leading to 20 Missouri points and holding Prairie View to 41 percent shooting.

    The Panthers got a team-high 14 points from guard Donald Bell.
