Is Missouri really in the tournament? Could they play their way out?

    After watching them lose this morning, I looked at their schedule. Their biggest wins are at home against Illinois, KSU, and I guess us. They've only won 1 conference game on the road this year (ISU).

    Their biggest road win is probably at Oregon....that was the only road game they played OOC.

    They still have to play @Nebraska and then Kansas at home. If they lose those two, they'll have a 3 game losing streak going into the tournament, and could be as low as the #6 or 7 spot based on how everybody else does.

    That doesn't look like much of a resume to me. It's not who you played, it's who you can beat.

    We've all assumed that they're gonna be in, and I'm starting to question our assumptions. Thoughts?

    They are 22-7 overall. They are 8-6 in the conference, meaning they finish 8-8 at worst.

    I would say they are IN right now.

    Not impressive. Their preseason RPI is propping them up a bit, just like Michigan State.

    The Illinois win was a neutral site win. They also beat a pretty good Vanderbilt team. I think the only way they would be in trouble is if they lose these next 2 and then lose in the first round of the conference tournament.
