Every election year, I hear the same complaints about the political party system, rigged elections and flawed candidates. As it happens, many of these come from folks who are rationalizing their decision not to vote.

Malcontents.

Freshman Montaque Gill-Caesar led the offensive output for Missouri with 19 points, with 10 total Tigers reaching the score sheet on the night.
