What we learned, what they said, what needs to improve and what comes next after Mizzou's 83-75 win over No. 21 Oregon.
Missouri passed its early test against No. 21 Oregon, validating coach Cuonzo Martin's belief that a Tigers team that returned four starters is poised to move up in the Southeastern Conference. Xavier Pinson scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half and Missouri overcame a mid-game lull and late Oregon flurry to beat the Ducks 83-75 on Wednesday night. ''I like going to battle with them because they value each other, they want to see each other successful, they don't care who gets the accolades,'' Martin said.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Chris Harris scored 18 points and Nana Akenten had 17 points and six rebounds as Southeast Missouri defeated Kansas City 71-66 on Saturday.
