The Missouri Tigers Win the Big 12 Tournament Title

With Missouri heading to the SEC next year, the Tigers are taking the 2012 Big 12 Tournament Championship with them.  Missouri beat Baylor, 90-75.  Down the stretch, Baylor cut the lead down, but a couple turnovers would cost them the game.  Missouri had five of their players score over 15 points.  Despite being outrebounded by 11, the Tigers won the game by 15 points, mostly due to their hot shooting (43% from behind the arc and 53% from the field).

Although Big 12 fans may hate the Missouri Tigers, you have to give them credit.  Mizzou won pretty easily in all three of their tournament games; winning by double-digits in all.  In my opinion, Missouri should receive a 1-seed for the NCAA Tournament instead of Kansas, but that is for the others to decide.

Anyways, congrats to the Mizzou fans, although, the Cyclones should have beaten you twice.
