“It’s game day!” he said exuberantly to the still hungover Mizzou/Chiefs fans from Sunday

It’s Tuesday, and Missouri is playing a basketball game tonight. I’m running out of ways to say, “Just win, baby!” so at some point the Tigers are really just going to have to win, baby.

Anyway, here are a few of yesterday’s basketball snippets. We’ll have our full game preview up later this morning.

  • Missouri isn’t bringing up the rear in Dave Matter’s latest SEC Heat Check, but that’s only because the SEC is a big ole nasty turd this year.
  • Also in the Post-Dispatch, Coach Martin acknowledged how hard it can be to build momentum in a season like this.
  • The Columbia Tribune highlights how Missouri could find some measure of redemption against the Aggies tonight.
  • The SEC Network featured Mizzou last night. The pull quote seems curious given the play this year, but hey, I’m not an SEC Network producer.
