Missouri will host Texas A&M for a special "Big Monday" afternoon game as part of the Martin Luther King Jr. Marathon.
Missouri (16-1) will make its second consecutive appearance on ESPN's Big Monday Martin Luther King Jr. Marathon, hosting conference foe Texas A&M (10-6) Monday afternoon. The game will reunite Missouri head coach Frank Haith with one of his assistants at Miami, Billy Kennedy, currently the Aggies' head coach.
Missouri's senior class is an impressive 61-3 at home at Mizzou Arena, but sophomore Phil Pressey has stolen the spotlight. In the Tigers' 84-73 win over Texas on Saturday, Pressey finished with 18 points and ten assists, the fourth time this season he's finished with double digit assists, a school record.
