College Basketball Rankings: Mizzou Holds At No. 3 With 7-Game Winning Streak

The No. 3 Missouri Tigers (25-2) have lost only two games all season, and they took some potent revenge for one of those losses last Wednesday. Stationed at No. 3 in both the AP Poll and the Coaches Poll, Missouri started the season with a 14-0 record and a 2-month winning streak.

That string of success came to a rude halt on January 7, however, when the Kansas St. Wildcats dished out a 59-75 loss. Two weeks later, the Oklahoma St. Cowboys handed Mizzou their second loss in a 72-79 game.

The Tigers finally had their chance at vengeance this last week and responded Wednesday, beating the Cowboys 83-65 at home. Now they have the ripe opportunity to continue their redemption, as well as improve their standings, as they face a strong Kansas State team this Tuesday night with only four games remaining in the regular season.
