The Missouri Tigers will try to extend their winning streak to five games tonight against the 6th-best team in the country. Oklahoma State comes to Columbia with a 21-2 record and a 12-1 mark in the Big 12. Tiger guards Thomas Gardner and Jimmy McKinney will have the most unenviable job in college basketball this evening—they’ll be assigned to Cowboy guard John Lucas, who is making a strong run at Big 12 Player of the Year honors. Lucas averages 14.4 points per game and dishes out 4.8 assists per game, but his most impressive stat comes from 19-feet 9-inches away from the hoop—he has hit 48-of-111 three pointers this season. In fact, OSU as a team is solid from beyond the arc, hitting 40-percent of them this season. Guard Tony Allen leads the team with 15.5 points per contest and grabs 5.1 rebounds per game. The Cowboys have won 17 of their last 18 games and eleven in a row. Their only losses were to Brigham Young and Texas Tech.
