Mizzou got their destination and it's Buffalo, New York in a East Sub-Regional (a.k.a. First and Second Rounds) against the Clemson Tigers (Cat Fight!). In the other game, it's the Morgan State Bears vs. the West Virginia Mountaineers.
Since this is the NCAA's I am posting our records against the opponents in our Sub-Region. If Missouri makes it to the Sweet Sixteen, I will post the same against them. I will do a series comment after each opponent.
And now (after the jump) Missouri Men's Basketball All-Time vs. Clemson, Morgan State and West Virginia!
(Missouri leads 2-1)
12-29-1985 W *69-64 Honolulu, HI
11-30-1996 L #45-47 San Juan, PR
3-19-2010 W +76-68 Buffalo, NY
* Rainbow Classic
# San Juan Shootout
+ NCAA East Regional First Round
Missouri only faces the Clemson Tigers in neutral court affairs, and this one was the series tie-breaker that Mizzou won!
(Missouri leads 2-0)
12-31-1988 W 96-66 Columbia, MO
11-27-1999 W 91-50 Columbia, MO
Missouri vs. the Morgan State Bears has been a Columbia only affair and I expect it to stay that way. No way Huggie Bear loses this first round game (or will Huggins have his usual luck in the 2nd round in the 1st?)
(Series tied 1-1)
3-19-1992 W *89-78 Greensboro, NC
3-20-2010 L #59-68 Buffalo, NY
* NCAA East Regional First Round
# NCAA East Regional Second Round
The only time Mizzou and WVU has faced each other was 18 years ago in Greensboro and Mizzou won it!
Historically, Missouri has at least broken even with all the teams in the Sub-Region. This may be a good omen of things to come...
