They’re back! The Mizzou men’s basketball team returned to the rankings this week, coming in at No. 25 in this week’s Associated Press poll.

The Tigers, now 9-1, haven’t been ranked since Jan. 3, 2004. This season Mizzou has won seven consecutive games, and the team heads into Tuesday night’s Braggin’ Rights game against Illinois (10-1) on a wave of momentum.

En route to the current record, Mizzou beat traditional powers Cal and then-No. 19 USC. The only loss came at the hands of No. 14 Xavier.

The Tigers return home Dec. 27 to face SIU Edwardsville at 4 p.m. Parking is free for all games during the winter break.
