Today’s game between the Missouri Tigers and the Baylor Bears was set to be the best game of the day. Little did Frank Haith’s team realize that they would pull off arguably the best road win of the year in college basketball. The fifth ranked Tigers went on the road against the Bears to pull off the 89-88 in Waco and give the Tigers an anchor win for a possible No. 1 seed in the upcoming NCAA Tournament.
“This was one of the most impressive road wins by any college basketball team this season,” writes Jason King. “Missouri had an excellent game plan that led to loads of open looks for the Tigers. Frank Haith’s squad has done a tremendous job of bouncing back from a Jan. 7 loss at Kansas State. Missouri is a legitimate top-5 team and is good enough to win a national championship.”
Missouri’s next game comes on Wednesday night against the Oklahoma State Cowboys.
