Mizzou basketball moves up in the ranks
Story by Ryan Gavin
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.
