College Basketball Rankings: Missouri Tigers Rank No. 6 In USA Today/Coaches Poll

The team will begin to be tested this week in Big 12 conference play with games against the Oklahoma Sooners and the No. 22 Kansas State Wildcats.

The Missouri Tigers continue to climb under new head coach Frank Haith in both the non-conference standings and the college basketball rankings. And the Big 12 now looks even more formidable at the top with four teams ranked overall starting with Baylor at No. 5 and the Tigers at No. 6 in the latest USA Today/Coaches Top 25 poll.

The Tigers are now 13-0 after a win against Old Dominion this week and the team leads the entire nation in field goal percentage with 51 percent. The team will begin to be tested this week in Big 12 conference play with games against the Oklahoma Sooners and the No. 22 Kansas State Wildcats. While they might fall from the ranks of the unbeaten, it's clear that Missouri is a major scoring force to be reckoned with.
