The Missouri Tigers will take on the leader in the Big 12, 5-0 K-State on Saturday at 12:30 at Mizzou Arena. The Wildcats coming off an 84-75 win over KU, snapping a 24-game losing streak at home to the Jayhawks.
Still no word on whether of not Mizzou head coach Mike Anderson will lift the suspensions of Jason Horton, Marshall Brown, Darryl Butterfield, and Leo Lyons. If not, expect another solid effort from the Tigers, but don’t expect anything close to a four point game like the Nebraska game. However, if those four have paid their dues, and do suit up, I would expect the Tigers to come charged up for this one.
Wyatt Thompson, play-by-play talent of the K-State Radio Network, talked with me about fear of letdown after the Cats upset win, their surprise turnaround this season, freshmen phenom Michael Beasley, and life after Bob Huggins.
