Mizzou remains undefeated in Rally for Rhyan games
Well, that was fun, wasn’t it? I really think that we saw something good from everyone at one point or another in this game, and the fact that we pulled out a victory without Mark Smith or Jeremiah Tilmon and while in a bunch of foul trouble makes it even more impressive. Does it change the season thus far? No, it’s still disappointing. But does it make you feel all good inside, even if just for one day? ABSOLUTELY. (For the record- I never stopped believing)

If this is the game that gets Tray Jackson more playing time down the stretch, then this Saturday has been a win-win for Mizzou.— Joe Walljasper (@JoeWalljasper) February 8, 2020
Fave pic of the day? Hard to choose, but going with this one...

- Ryan told us in his gamer that heading into the game, the Tigers said that they didn’t just want to win. They also wanted to keep their unbeaten streak in Rally for Rhyan games alive and 59 fouls (!) later, Missouri did just that.
