Missouri basketball returns to the court against No. 25 LSU.
The Missouri basketball team won another Rally for Rhyan game to go to 5-0 in those outings. The Tigers did so by knocking off NCAA Tournament hopeful Arkansas Mizzou must keep that intensity up to have a shot at a win today.
Mizzou plays No. 25 LSU on the road. The other Tigers stayed in the rankings despite a loss to SEC-winless Vanderbilt last week in one of the biggest SEC upsets in a long time. Mizzou has a chance here, but Missouri is a heavy underdog. The Tigers have blown these same opportunities in the past, and it’d be nice for the Tigers to take advantage of it.
