Hello Tiger Fans from Mizzou Arena. All is quiet on the main arena floor at 5 p.m., but Kimmie English has just arrived to get prepared for tonight's game against Savannah State.
There is a rumor it's snowing outside, but it's plenty warm inside Mizzou Arena. If all else fails, Kimmie said he would relinquish his locker room sleeping quarters if fans need a place to stay (he was kidding of course).
Missouri is looking to run its home court winning streak to 29 games tonight vs. the Savannah State Tigers. The visitors have been on the road for quite some time. They played a game at Western Illinois (loss) and drove straight to Columbia from Macomb, Ill., after the game.
In other news, Missouri's RPI is up to 70. In addition to its current winning streak, the Tigers got some help from Georgia who earned a rivalry win against #17 Georgia Tech on Tuesday evening in Athens.
There are three other games around the Big 12 tonight. Kansas hosts former Missouri NCAA Tournament foe Cornell at home and Iowa State hosts the Duke Blue Devils at the United Center in Chicago. Baylor vs. Morgan State in Waco, Texas, rounds out tonight's Big 12 schedule.
