After the drubbing the Missouri Tigers received last weekend at the hands of Kansas, there was certainly some doubt when it came to their chances of victory in Wednesday night's home match-up against fourth-ranked Oklahoma.

Of course by now you know that Mizzou won big, beating the Sooners 73-64, keeping themselves in contention for a share of the Big 12 title, and avenging a long string of embarrassing losses to OU on the football field.

Still, I couldn't help but wonder what the headline writers at ESPN.com where smoking when they came up with this one: "

Not only was Mizzou the twelfth-ranked team in the country (for comparison, a 12 seed always beats a 5 seed come tourney time), they were undefeated at home, it was senior night, and the Sooners had lost two of their last three.

Frankly, Mizzou should have been favored in the game.
