Mizzou plays seven guys, and all seven had to come up huge for the Tigers to beat their Border War rivals tonight. They did. Marcus Denmon took over at the beginning and end, Mike Dixon made two enormous free throws, and the Tigers finished the game on an 11-0 run to move to 21-2 and, more importantly, 8-2 in conference. They are now tied for first place.

When the camera is on, Mizzou has the best fans in the country. Mizzou Arena was absolutely electric tonight.

Congrats, boys ... now if you want to hold onto first, you've got to win in Norman in about 45 hours.
