COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Kim English scored a career-high 29 points and No. 21 Missouri rolled to an 88-59 victory over winless Binghamton on Sunday.

The Big 12's leading 3-point shooter hit 7 of 10 from behind the arc. His 22 first-half points helped Missouri (6-0) to a 49-31 halftime lead.

Ben Dickinson led Binghamton (0-5) with 15 points.

English, a 6-foot-6 senior, entered the game hitting 60 percent of his 3-pointers. Normally a shooting guard, English is the Tigers' starting power forward after Laurence Bowers' season-ending knee injury in the preseason. English's previous career-high was 26 against Chattanooga in 2009

Missouri entered the game shooting 51.3 percent from the field. The Tigers shot nearly 55 percent from the field Sunday, hitting 62.1 percent in the first half.
