The third-ranked Tigers get a chance to show how far they’ve come when they host Kansas State today (6 p.m. ESPN2-TV) at Mizzou Arena.

Missouri (25-2, 12-2 Big 12) walked into Manhattan 14-0 that afternoon. But the Tigers met a team that pressured them like no other team had this season. They didn’t respond from the initial punch and shot just 32 percent from the floor and scored a season-low 59 points.
