Missouri looks to avenge earlier loss to Oklahoma State

February 15th, 2012 in News

COLUMBIA, Mo. - After Missouri lost its second game of the season on Jan. 25, the Tigers wanted to use the late collapse against Oklahoma State as a learning experience to get better.

So far, so good for Missouri as the Cowboys come today to Mizzou Arena (8 p.m., ESPN2-TV) for Round 2.

The third-ranked Tigers have bounced back from the 79-72 defeat with five straight wins, and are a half-game behind Kansas for the Big 12 Conference lead.

"You saw close ball games down the stretch after that where we played much better," Missouri coach Frank Haith said. "We've learned from our experiences and most good ball clubs do."
