Missouri Blues

It's been a long slide for the Missouri men's basketball team since their 9 - 0 start at the beginning of the season, and there's definitely not a shortage of challenges the rest of the way if the Tigers want to make it to the NCAA tournament.

The 72 - 70 loss to Texas on Sunday was the latest setback, and it had all the familiar elements. The team, ranked #2 in the country in December, is too soft in the middle, too weak at the point, and too scattershot with its attack. That's not the ideal recipe heading into the homestretch of the Big XII season.

The 18 - 8 Tigers have four regular-season games remaining beginning with the resurgent and always deadly Texas Tech Red Raiders on Wednesday night. They must also still face #13 Oklahoma State and #1 Kansas.
