In a back and forth contest, the visiting Missouri Tigers hold a four point halftime lead over Baylor, 39-35.
Missouri, who came into Saturday's contest winners of three straight games, has been led by senior F Ricardo Ratliffe, who chipped in 15 points and six rebounds. Star G Flip Pressey has added five points, four rebounds, and four assists, and the Tigers have converted nearly 50% of their field goal attempts.
The Tigers have also overwhelmed Baylor on the glass, out-rebounding the Bears 19-11 in the first half, and limiting Baylor to just three offensive rebounds.
It hasn't all been good for Missouri, however, as they've turned the ball over ten times.
Missouri matches Baylor with a 17-1 record, including a 4-1 record within the Big 12 conference. The Tigers are currently ranked fifth in the country in both the Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today Coaches Polls, and will likely leapfrog third ranked Baylor with a win today.
