Big 12 Tournament Semifinals, Missouri vs. Texas: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Missouri Tigers face the Texas Longhorns on Friday night in one of the two semifinals matchups in the Big 12 tournament in the Sprint Center in Kansas City at 9 p.m. (CT). The No. 2 seeded Tigers defeated the No. 6 seeded Longhorns in both of their regular season matchups by a combined score of 151-139. The Tigers are trying to get to the conference championship game for the first time since 2009 and for the last time since they leave for the SEC next season.

The Tigers are led by Marcus Denmon, who is averaging 18.2 points per game, and Kim English, who is averaging 14.5, while the Longhorns are led by J'Covan Brown, who is averaging 20.1 points per game, and Sheldon McClellan, who averages 11.3.

Even though the Tigers don't have to worry about making it into the NCAA Tournament and they're leaving the conference, English says that this game is still important to him and his teammates.

"We want this as bad as we wanted the Big 12," guard Kim English said. "That's why our loss (at Kansas) hurt so bad. It was the Big 12 championship game. We just want to win a championship. It's not a chip on our shoulder."

Game Date/Time: Friday, March 9; 9 p.m. CT
