Missouri Vs. Texas Score Update: Tigers Up 39-32 At Halftime

With a possible No. 1 seed opening up with Kansas' loss to Baylor, the Missouri Tigers came out on fire in the first half of their conference semifinal game against the Texas Longhorns.

After twenty minutes, Missouri is up 39-32 on Texas.

Phil Pressey and Kim English dominated the game offensively, combining to score 32 points on 12-16 shooting, as many as the entire Texas roster.

The Longhorns were able to stay in the game thanks to a strong effort on the offensive glass, as Missouri's undersized front-line struggled to keep 6'8 freshman Jonathan Holmes, filling in for the injured Alexis Wangmene, and 6'10 senior center Clint Chapman, who had five offensive rebounds.

With the Tigers winning despite getting almost nothing from Marcus Denmon in the first half, Texas will need to dramatically increase their offensive efficiency if they want to give themselves a chance.

While the Longhorns improved their resume with their victory over Iowa State on Thursday, they still need to defeat Missouri to ensure their spot in the NCAA Tournament.
