This has not been a great week for either of Missouri’s basketball teams

Here are today’s Mizzou Links.

1. The Missouri women dropped a tough road game at No. 15 Kentucky on Thursday.

In what was the most challenging stretch of the season to date, Missouri went 0-2 this week against South Carolina and Kentucky to fall to 15-6 (3-4) on the season.

Missouri lost to the Wildcats 52-41, shooting just 13-of-39 from the field and turning the ball over 20 times. Following up on the Missouri men’s 20-plus turnover performance against Arkansas, it was not a good two days for ball control.

In the span of four days, the Missouri basketball teams went 0-3 and also suffered a transfer on the women’s side.

The best part about this week though? We never have to live it again. On to the next one.

2. Your Daily Drew.

Another day at the Senior Bowl, another day of Drew Lock garnering a healthy dose of the headlines. Here’s all the Drew News that’s fit to print:

  • Bleacher Report focuses on a few Pat Mahomes comparisons in this profile of Drew Lock (Note: I actually don’t disagree with some of the Mahomes comparisons, in that Lock has a big arm, can fit the ball in tight windows and throws at different arm angles/different stances. Not saying he’ll be as good as Mahomes, of course.)
  • The Athletic focuses on Lock’s decision to return for his senior year and the experience he’ll bring to the NFL in this profile (paywall).
  • There’s this:
  • And also this. Which, by the way, I don’t think these folks have seen Justin Bieber lately if they think Lock has Bieber hair

3. Rally for Rhyan game set for Feb. 2.

I know it hasn’t been a banner year for Missouri hoops so far, but if you’re going to go to one hoops game this year, go to this one.

The fourth annual Rally for Rhyan game will be against Vanderbilt on Feb. 2.

From the release:

The first 5,000 fans will receive a commemorative #RallyForRhyan gold rally towel. Surrounding the game are numerous other activities to generate funds going toward the #RallyForRhyan campaign to raise awareness and fund further pediatric cancer research. Cash donations will again be accepted on the concourse throughout the game. A 50/50 raffle and a silent auction is also planned.

Also serving as the team’s annual Gold Rush Game, fans are encouraged to wear gold, and specially-designed gold #RallyForRhyan t-shirts will again be available exclusively through the Tiger Team Store & The Mizzou Store, with all proceeds donated toward pediatric cancer research. T-shirts ($15) are available in-person at either the stadium store or the campus location or on game day at Mizzou Arena, the campus bookstore or online here.

Make sure you’re there.
