Missouri Eyeing NCAA Tournament Bid

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Three years ago, Missouri basketball hit an all-time low.

But the Tigers' thrilling come-from-behind 62-60 victory over Kansas on Monday night ended a five-game losing streak against their bitter border rival.

It also left hundreds of fans storming the court.

Missouri (21-4, 8-2 Big 12) always gets a sellout for the Kansas game. But coach Mike Anderson sensed a different attitude, an anticipation, before the latest renewal, especially after the Tigers' road win at Texas knocked the Longhorns out of the Top 25 only five days earlier.

Barring total collapse, the school's five-year NCAA tournament drought also is about to end.
