Missouri’s two major university basketball teams take difficult losses during the weekend. The Missouri Tigers lost to Kansas in their final regular season home game and thus lost a chance for a bye in the first round of the Big 12 tournament. They finish sixth and play Texas Tech Wednesday.
Missouri State , the regular season champion of the Missouri Valley, lost the championship game of the conference tournament to Indiana State. Although they’re 25-87, Missouri State is not guaranteed a spot in the NCAA tournament.
