The Missouri basketball program is exactly where they had wanted to be, playing for the Big 12 Tournament Title, before they head off to the NCAA's and the SEC Conference next season. However there is one glaring thing missing, the Kansas Jayhawks. While many of us were preparing for 2012's Part Three of the hotly-contested rivalry, the Tigers will instead be facing the Baylor Bears.
Baylor is coming off an 81-72 victory over KU on Friday evening, while the Tigers were 81-67 victors over the Texas Longhorns. In two previous match-ups with Baylor, the Tigers won by one point in Waco, while Missouri ran out to a 72-57 victory in Columbia.
