Missouri basketball plays No. 14 West Virginia in the Big 12/SEC Challenge on Saturday.
The Missouri basketball team is on a three-game losing streak in the SEC. The Tigers will have to wait another game to break up that streak because Mizzou is playing a Big 12 opponent this weekend.
Mizzou will play No. 14 West Virginia today as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge. Before the season, this game looked like it could be a toss-up, with the slight advantage going to Morgantown since the Mountaineers are at home. But Mizzou sits at .500 after 18 games, while West Virginia has cracked the top 15 in the nation.
Here’s a look at today’s game:
Records: No. 14 West Virginia 15-3; Missouri: 9-9

The two schools met up on the gridiron in September and now they will play on the hardwood. The Tigers and the Mountaineers basketball teams have played against each other four times in their history, with each team winning two. West Virginia won the last time these two teams met, which was in 2017.
The Mountaineers have a well-balanced team. Oscar Tshiebwe, Derek Culver and Miles McBride all score more than 10 points a game and are separated by less than 30 points total. The freshman Tshiebwe is one of the best rebounders in the country, and averages more than four a game offensively. This is where Mizzou needs to stop West Virginia to have a chance.
