A win is a win, and we’ve been saying that a lot lately. With a 75-70 victory on Wednesday night, the Missouri Tigers beat the Kentucky Wildcats for just the second time in program history — and both of those wins belong to Cuonzo Martin.

With a team-leading 26 points from Dru Smith, Mizzou improved to 12-3 (5-3 SEC) on the season, and that currently puts them in second place in the league. Right now, Missouri is up to 34th on KenPom and 27th on Bart Torvik.

Jimmy Dykes, who was on the call with Karl Ravech on ESPN2 last night, liked what he saw from Missouri:

And this all sets up to be a much anticipated match up with the top two teams in the league.

Mizzou. Alabama. Saturday. 11 AM. ESPN. The Crimson Tide are certainly due for their first SEC loss of the season, right? One can only hope.

Here are the highlights from last night’s win:

And yes, Wednesday was the second National Signing Day in College Football, but it was a relatively quiet one for Mizzou (as to be expected). The two new additions that have officially signed were Chattanooga running back BJ Harris and Rice linebacker transfer Blaze Alldredge.

But go ahead and do yourselves a favor and head over to the Mizzou Football Twitter, as there’s a bunch of cool content with family videos of all the new recruits.

As Signing Day wraps up, Eli Drinkwitz’s first full class ranks 21st on Rivals and 28th on 247Sports. Well done, Drink!

Other SEC basketball scores on Wednesday night:

  • South Carolina 72, No. 22 Florida 66
  • No. 10 Alabama 78, LSU 60
