Border War Starters, Best Matchups?

I’m curious who everyone thinks will be the starters and the best matchups for Sunday’s exhibition with Mizzou. I really don’t know anything about the Missouri team, other than they are young and that 6’10", freshman Michael Porter is expected to be a talent. Can Doke, Preston and Lightfoot slow him down? Our guards should dominate the game, right?
I’ll be listening on radio just like games we played in the 80’s and I’ll be missing Max and Bob the whole time. Should we start a pool on how many minutes Doke plays before he fouls out?
I predict Dok won’t foul out- I think with it being an exhibition someone said they had 7 fouls instead of 5. No idea if that is true.
I predict Porter goes for 20- he is just plain polished for his age. I agree our guards dominate- I predict final score 85-70 ish.
Biggest fear as always, MU pulls it out and I have to listen to a moutain of crap from my MU buddies- with no end in sight for a rematch.
Super excited they are streaming it though! Can’t wait! And perfect timing with no Chiefs game. I need my reasons/excuses for blowing off house work.

Or watch it streamed for $40 -
Outside of Porter and Tillmon, do they have any decent guards? If not, I think it’s a double digit KU win.

I hope we start Graham, Newman, Vick, Preston, and Udoka.

It would have been fun to see Josh Jackson against Porter.
@HighEliteMajor hasn’t self talked about starting a traditional lineup with Preston?

@HawkChamp I think he wants to, yes. But l’ve also seen him in past years not start freshmen in early season match-ups.
