Missouri hasn't forgotten what happened when it traveled Jan. 7 to Manhattan, Kan.

"They took us out to the woodshed," Missouri coach Frank Haith said about his team's 75-59 loss to Kansas State. "They whipped us, simple as that. They physically dominated the game. They physically dominated us on the glass, in all aspects of the game. I mean it was just a butt whooping. They took it right to us."

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.
