This game between the Missouri Tigers and Kansas Jayhawks has much more on the line than the Big 12 regular season title. A No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament is at stake for the winner of this game. A win against a top-five team is a big coup when the selection committee decides if a team is worthy a one- or two-seed.
When these two teams met last it was a close matchup that went Missouri's way as they won 74-71. The home court played a factor for Missouri last time around, so Kansas gets that edge this time around. Missouri has not played well at Kansas and have not won since 1999, and if that streak continues then it would give Kansas their eighth straight Big 12 regular season title.
Unless these two teams meet in the Big 12 title game it will likely be the last time these two teams will play each other in a long time since Missouri is heading to the SEC, and ending a 150-year-old rivalry.
