Senior Night got off to a rougher start than what was likely predicted given Missouri's No. 8 ranking in the polls, but Iowa State has proven to be a pesky opponent. Then again, that might have been predicted given the Cyclones fourth place ranking in the Big 12 at 11-5 coming into tonight's action. As for now, the Cyclones have the halftime lead 40-36 at Missouri.
Thus far, the three-point range of the Cyclones along with their offensive rebounding has kept the Tigers at bay. The Cyclones have six three-point baskets compared to the Tigers with two. They also have a tremendous rebounding edge with 8 offensive boards that has led to some second chance points.
