Mizzou Basketball at Oklahoma State
Stillwater, OK- The Mizzou Tigers basketball team braved two days of travel due to the major winter snowstorm to head to Stillwater, OK to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys.  The Tigers entered the game ranked 15th in the nation with a record of 17-4, 3-3.  The Tigers struggled throughout the game, and carried a 7-pt deficit at the half.  The Tigers showed heart, though, battling and keeping the score close.  They brought the score to as close as three with about a minute to play, but in the end they fell 70-76 to the Cowpokes.

The Tigers fall to 17-5, 3-4 on the season, all four conference losses on the road.  They return to Columbia for the final game against the Colorado Buffaloes before they head to kansas on Monday to take on the beakers.
