Virgin Islander and Missouri Tigers’ D’Moi M. Hodge, who has been having a good season with the Tigers, showed his basketball class against the University of Central Florida (UCF) on December 17, 2022.
Hodge was the second top scorer for the Tigers, netting 15 points and 4 rebounds, as they edged out UCF, 68-66 at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida.
One of the highlights of the keenly contested affair was in the second half when, with the score being 40-36 in favour of the Tigers, Hodge received the ball outside of the three-point arc and made his way to the basket, zipped past two opposing players and slammed dunk on two opposing players.
The explosive play sent the Tigers’ bench in a frenzy.
UCF would come back to lead 66-65 with mere seconds on the clock, before DeAndre Gholston hit a 3-point buzzer-beater to give Missouri the win.
Hodge and the Tigers are in action tomorrow, December 28, 2022, against Kentucky Wildcats.
