Championship Week Live Thread: Day Four (Early)

Okay, now things really get interesting.  There were 28 games yesterday ... and there are 51 today.  Let's roll.

BUT FIRST ... today's early discussion question: what are Mizzou's best ever conference tournament performances (team or player)?  I asked Michael Atchison about this, and here are some of his suggestions:

1978 (Team and Stan Ray)
1982 (Ricky Frazier scored 24 in the title game)
1987 (Team and "Lee Coward, Jayhawk Assassin")
1989 (Norm fights cancer, team wins title despite 38 from Stacey King)
1991 (Team and Doug Smith)
1993 (Team and Chris Heller)

2009 (Team and ... Matt Lawrence?)

What are your favorites?
