Missouri Vs. Oklahoma: Live Thread, Updates And The Containment Of Steven Pledger

The Missouri Tigers take their talents on the road to face off against the Oklahoma Sooners in Big 12 action.

While the Missouri Tigers take their talents to Norman, Oklahoma to face off against a scrappy Oklahoma Sooners squad in Lloyd Noble Arena, Frank Haith will be pushing his team to get their 22nd win of the season and keep pace with Kansas and Baylor in the Big 12 title race.

Be sure to keep up with updates on this Big 12 clash by checking the Live Thread provided by Rock M Nation, as they did an excellent job on a key focal point for the Tigers. Can they keep Sooners' guard Steven Pledger contained?

Keep Pledger Cool: The last time Mizzou traveled to Oklahoma following a big win, they played well enough to take a lead but couldn't pull away; and then Le'Bryan Nash got hot and carried Oklahoma State to a win. If there is a Nash in this game, it is Steven Pledger, Oklahoma's only true high-volume perimeter scorer. He will probably need a huge game for the Sooners to pull the upset, but he has had big games recently. His ceiling isn't as high as Nash's, but it's high enough to give Mizzou problems. Stop him.
