The Missouri Tigers have proven themselves to be worthy of elite status this season as they maintain their No. 4 ranking in this week's AP poll.

With the Missouri Tigers pulling out a huge win versus their bitter rivals in the Kansas Jayhawks, Frank Haith's squad has proven themselves to be among the elite in college basketball. There was no movement in the top six in this week's coaches poll, and even with the loss Kansas managed to move up one spot to No. 7 in the rankings.
