Merry Christmas (Eve), everybody!
Are you all still in shock that Mizzou found a way to win that game on Tuesday night? Yeah, same here. It was a VERY ugly 54-53 win — but a win is a win, indeed. It is also worth mentioning that back on November 26th, Bradley lost a 51-50 game at ranked Xavier team.
The only thing that matters though, is that Mizzou basketball is undefeated heading into Christmas. And at 6-0, not a lot of teams in the country can say that!
College basketball has 14 teams left that have played at least 6 games and have won all of them. Missouri and Southern Illinois are two of them.— Ben Frederickson (@Ben_Fred) December 23, 2020
Mizzou is also on a seven-game winning streak (dating back to last season, of course). It’s their longest win streak since 2013!
Onto football, some big time awards were announced on Wednesday, and a HUGE congrats to Nick Bolton and Trajan Jeffcoat, who were named to the AP All-SEC First Team. That’s a heck of an honor for those two defensive studs.
BK has a more in-depth piece on Nick Bolton, so let’s get to the links!
