Missouri Vs. Baylor: Score Update, Tigers Sink Third Ranked Bears 89-88

Powered by a career-high 27 points and eight rebounds from senior F Ricardo Ratliffe, the fifth ranked Missouri Tigers upset the third ranked Baylor Bears 89-88 in Waco, TX on Saturday afternoon.

Four players finished in double digit scoring for the Tigers, and Missouri earned its fourth straight win and 18th in 19th tries on the season.

Baylor kept it close throughout the contest, but just enough free throw shooting down the stretch gave Missouri their fifth Big 12 win on the season.

Ratliffe was the story of the day, hitting 11 of his 14 shots, and continuing his torrid season-long shooting pace. Ratliffe leads the country with a .771 field goal percentage, which would set an all-time NCAA record for a season if the senior is able to sustain it.

Missouri jumps into sole possession of second place with the win, trailing only Kansas, who faces off with Texas later Saturday afternoon.
