We at Rock M Nation hope that everybody had a Merry Christmas!
And Mizzou basketball certainly did with their second straight Braggin’ Rights win. Of course, each Christmas is just a little bit better with a win over Illinois.
And Mizzou women’s basketball is counting the Top 10 Robin Pingeton moments of this decade. Today was No. 7, and there were a lot of cool NCAA Tournament memories on here.

Behind 20 points from @sophaller and 19 points from @jordydayle, #Mizzou defeated BYU 78-69 to advance to the second round of the 2016 NCAA Tournament!#MIZ #OurTownOurTeam pic.twitter.com/of2ZZyhziY
This was what really jumpstarted the Sophie Cunningham era as the Tigers made the NCAA Tournament four years in a row in her legendary career.
Onto some NBA....and here’s a first look at Jordan Clarkson in a Utah Jazz uniform (and he’ll be playing under Quin Snyder)!
Jordan Clarkson and Michael Porter Jr. will be squaring off more often now as Utah and Denver are division rivals.
MPJ played on NBA Christmas Day for Denver, albeit for only five minutes. He scored five points with one rebound and one assist as the Nuggets fell at home to the Pelicans 112-100. Seriously, play him more, guys.
Onto some (very few) Christmas links!
