Missouri in the Hunt for a #1 Seed?
Kansas had been projected as a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament before losing to Baylor. Now the possibility exists that the Tigers could become a No. 1 seed.
“That’s out of our control,” (Kim) English said. “I’m not Joe Lunardi. I don’t know (what will happen). I have no clue. We’re just trying to win this Big 12 championship.”
To do that, Missouri will have to defeat Baylor for the third time this season. The Tigers escaped Waco, Texas, with a 1-point victory on Jan. 21 before throttling the Bears 72-57 last month in Columbia.
Missouri’s players said Baylor’s performance in its past two games has definitely caught their attention.
“They’re playing their best basketball,” English said, “at just the right time.”
So, too, are the Tigers, who are hoping their final Big 12 tournament game in history is also their best.
