The Missouri Tigers have received a huge contribution from Phil Pressey while their defense has also stifled star center Perry Jones III as they lead 33-29 over the Baylor Bears on the road in Waco, Texas.
Phil Pressey has 12 points with three three-pointers to his credit to lead Frank Haith's basketball team. However, the story has been the (lack of) performance from Perry Jones III. So far, Jones has just 4 points on 2-of-8 shooting as the Tigers have made life rough for the center down low.
Baylor has received a nice contribution from Anthony Jones and Quincy Miller in the first half, combining for 16 points thus far to keep the Bears close.
With a win Missouri can all but eliminate Baylor from the Big 12 regular season conference title race, can they finish the job in the second half? Updates coming soon from SB Nation Kansas City.
