A much-needed W.
Don’t let the road “Quad 1 losses” to Texas A&M and Florida fool you. Mizzou is still an NCAA Tournament caliber team right now, you guys.
The Tigers got a much-needed win to boost their resume with a 79-76 thrilling victory over No. 25 Arkansas to improve to 14-4 (3-3 SEC) on the season with a team-leading 17 points from Kobe Brown.

And wow, what a comeback it was — as the Tigers were down by 10 with under five minutes to go.
And good to see Isiaih Mosley make his return. Missouri is a better team with him.

For now, this counts as another Quad 1 win on Missouri’s resume – but will likely fall to Quad 2 as the Razorbacks are likely to drop out of the Top 30 in the NET rankings (they’re currently No. 27). Regardless, it’s still a quality win to add to what was already a pretty good resume.
After the win, Mizzou moved up four spots from 58th to 54th in the KenPom rankings.
A look at some media reaction to the win:
Missouri gets a much-needed win and some revenge against Arkansas tonight.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanHoops) January 19, 2023
Tigers had lost 3 of 4 and this could be an important one for their NCAA tourney resume come Selection Sunday.
Great atmosphere here in Columbia. Especially with the student section.
This @MizzouHoops story is incredible. They trailed by 10 with 5 minutes to play against a very talented Arkansas team and win. If you’re a recruit watching this style and atmosphere, don’t you want to come play for @coachdgates— Frank Cusumano (@Frank_Cusumano) January 19, 2023
The importance of Missouri's win tonight over Arkansas can't be overstated.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) January 19, 2023
Two of the Tigers' next three games:
Yes, the win came against a struggling Arkansas team that was playing on the road without Nick Smith Jr. and of course Trevon Brazile, but let’s not forget that Mizzou was also without Noah Carter — unfortunately due to health and safety precautions. A gutsy win for the Tigers without their third leading scorer and second leading rebounder.
Man it’s hurting me I can’t be out there with my brothers right now… keep battling and let’s win this game @MizzouHoops— Noah Carter (@noah3carter) January 19, 2023
Here’s hoping we see Carter back soon.
And a big congrats to DeAndre Gholston for reaching 1,000 career points. He also hit the biggest shots of the game down the stretch. Clutch.
