Missouri Tigers Basketball Look Like 'Potential Top Two Seed' For Upcoming NCAA Tournament

Frank Haith has the Missouri Tigers men’s basketball team on a roll and now it seems that everyone is taking notice. Not only have the Tigers moved into the top 10 nationally and placed yet another team alongside Baylor and Kansas in the spotlight from the Big 12, but they’ve now created another power this season in what is becoming a very crowded conference schedule. Andy Katz has taken notice and says the Tigers are among the most impressive teams in the nation right now.

“The Tigers outlasted Illinois in their annual game in St. Louis,” said Katz. “The Tigers continue to look the part of a top 10 team and a potential top two seed in the NCAA tournament. Missouri got pushed as hard as it has this season by Illinois, but still prevailed late by making the right decisions.”

That’s high praise for Haith’s team, but with incredible scorers like Marcus Denmon and Kim English among others lighting up opposing defenses, it’s hard to believe it’s not true. If the Tigers earn a No. 2 seed at season’s end, it will mean that Frank Haith pulled off one of the best coaching jobs in the country and the awards will come rolling in.
